CACRCS DAYS 2020 - Capacity Assessment of Corroded Reinforced Concrete Structures

The capacity assessment of corroding reinforced concrete and prestressed structures has become a most relevant engineering task with significant social and economic impact. The need to develop codes for use in the practice spurs the research community to establish and share methods to determine material deterioration and mechanical properties, member resistance and structural capacity.



Capacity Assessment of Corroded Reinforced Concrete Structures

Workshop On Line, from 1 to 4 Dicember 2020

Organizes: Collegio dei Tecnici della Industrializzazione Edilizia

with the support of

  • Fédération International du Béton
  • fib Italy Young Member
  • Associazione Italiana Calcestruzzo Armato Precompresso





Special sessions are organised during the workshop. Authors are kindly invited to select the session at which they will present their papers. At the beginning of each session, chairpersons prepare two education presentations: the first one illustrates the fundamental, while the second one the research challenges of the topic treated in the session. Therefore, the virtual workshop offers a didactic material for engineers, practitioners and a forum for scientists, concrete technologists, researchers, academics to improve knowledge about corrosion of reinforced concrete structures.
