RILEM Spring Convention, and Workshop on Advances in Durability and New Construction Materials in Honour of Prof. Antonio Aguado

Share with :

The RILEM Spring Convention is a new important RILEM event which will be held for the first time in Barcelona this year and will subsequently be organised each year in the northern hemisphere ‘Spring’, normally in the month of March. It is the intention of RILEM to base as a rule the Spring Convention in Europe, while the Annual RILEM Week Event is generally organised outside of Europe. Yet of course exceptions will be possible.

Also, the convention will be an ideal opportunity to meet with partner organizations and will be the occasion for handing out the prestigious Colonnetti awards.

The Convention combines RILEM standing committee meetings (TAC, DAC, Development Meeting, Bureau), and a number of RILEM technical committee meetings.

As always, besides high quality technical content of the seminars and meetings, there will be opportunities for networking and public relations activities.

Workshop Scope

The workshop will feature on-going activities in RILEM TCs to present progress in two distinct fields, i.e. Durability and Use of New Materials.

Durability

In the durability section an overview will be giving of work going on in the cluster B, Transport and Deterioration Mechanisms. This cluster is covering the Technical Committees that have as main objectives of their activities the analysis of parameters and the mechanism that are leading the durable behaviour of the construction materials and are working in avoid the durability problems and in extend the service life of structures using appropriated materials. In this part of the Seminar there are different presentations related with the some of the important issues analysed actually in the RILEM Technical Comments.

New Materials

In the new materials section focus will be of work going on in the cluster A that is related with the Material Processing and Characterization. Under this cluster A is covered the Technical Committees of RILEM that have in their objectives the improvement the knowledge on new or actualized construction materials and the characteristics of them that provide better and/or new properties and functionalities at these materials. In the second part of the Seminar there are some presentations that are related with the development of new construction materials with new appropriated characteristics to be used in concrete elements or structures.
