6th International Conference on Concrete Repair, Rehabilitation and Retrofitting - ICCRRR 2021

Postponed to 4-6 October 2022 

The 6th International Conference on Concrete Repair, Rehabilitation and Retrofitting (ICCRRR 2021) will focus on service life extension of existing infrastructure and durability design of new concrete structures. The fields of concrete repair, rehabilitation and retrofitting, as well as concrete durability and structural performance remain some of the most relevant for modern civil and structural engineering. To master the challenges arising from this it is important to remain updated on recent developments in material technology, construction methods, performance assessment and non-destructive testing, as well as design, specifications and guidelines, and service life prediction models for both new and repaired/rehabilitated structures.

The ICCRRR is organized jointly by the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Cape Town and Karlsruhe institute of Technology in Germany. The international cooperation has always been the basis for the global success of the ICCRRR and we are delighted to be continuing in this tradition.

The ICCRRR is intended to bring together researchers, practicing engineers, infrastructure managers, concrete technologists, students, and the supporting industry from around the world to share knowledge and experience on current developments in concrete technology, durability design and service life management, condition assessment of concrete structures, and concrete repair, rehabilitation and retrofitting.
