The New Boundaries of Structural Concrete 2019

September 19-20, 2019 – Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy

The event is organized by ACI-Italy Chapter and DICA-Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the Politecnico di Milano, and is the fifth edition of the Workshop “The New Boundaries of Structural Concrete”.

The workshop will be held on the Campus “Leonardo” of the Politecnico di Milano, Lecture Hall “Beltrami”.

The objective of the workshop is to collect and to disseminate the latest results of the research projects in progress in Italy and abroad, concerning the production, application, durability and sustainability of concrete and cementitious materials, as well as the design, building techniques and repair of concrete structures.

The workshop is open to the scientific community – at the national/international level – and to the industrial and professional milieu, in order to facilitate the debate on the many critical issues concerning structural concrete.

Main Topics

  • Innovative cementitious materials
  • Corrosion and self-healing in R/C structures
  • Concrete and reinforced-concrete under extreme environmental conditions (earthquake, wind, temperature)
  • Concrete and reinforced-concrete in accidental conditions (fire, impact, blast)
  • Recycling of concrete and reinforced concreteShort- and long-term behavior of R/C structures
  • Bond and connections in R/C, P/C and mixed structures
  • Strengthening and repair of concrete structures
  • Performance and life-cycle of new concrete structures
  • Assessment and monitoring of ageing concrete structures
