fib Belgian Colloquium


High tech concrete: where technology and engineering meet

 

13 April 2016 – ‘Constant Vanden Stock’ Stadium Anderlecht, Brussels
Scientific coordinator: Stijn Matthys


Organized by the Belgian & Dutch Concrete Societies. This fib Colloquium is held on 13 April 2016 in Brussels. A mirror colloquium takes place in Rotterdam on 14 April 2016.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ABOUT THE COLLOQUIUM

The International Federation for Structural Concrete (fib) is a pre-normative organization and shapes the practice and future codes for concrete structures. Belgian delegates in fib play an important role in this work. They influence the development and uptake of emerging trends and innovations in concrete construction. Hereby, structural concrete is not just a continuously evolving material. It also represents a remarkable development in design concepts and strategies, as well as a high tech material engineered to show ultra high performance, and to be self compacting, self healing, environmentally friendly, etc. In this respect, the work of fib covers the whole life cycle of a concrete structure, from performance based design and construction, over durability and sustainability, to conservation (assessment, maintenance, strengthening) and dismantlement. This high tech concrete vision will be internationally presented and discussed during the upcoming fib Symposium ‘High tech concrete: where technology and engineering meet’ in Maastricht, 12-15 June 2017, organized by the Belgian & Dutch Concrete Societies. In view of this unique event, which brings the concrete world to the Belgian-Dutch region, the fib Belgium Colloquium presents today’s trends and valuable contributions in fib, and gives a sneak preview on the fib Symposium 2017.

Safety and working life of existing structures.
Growing emphasis on sustainability of our structures is resulting in an increasing demand to assess the structural performance of existing structures. New trends in this respect will be discussed, including impact of interventions required to extend the working life.
