Advanced Materials for Sustainable Infrastructure Development GRC - Cutting-Edge Developments and Characterization of Cement-Based Materials

Share with :

The objective of this GRC is to bring together leading experts from industry and academia to stimulate discussion related to new approaches to improving sustainability of cement-based materials and to hear about the latest developments. The effort to improve the sustainability of infrastructure requires development and utilization of less carbon intensive materials as well as extending the service life of infrastructure though design for durability and resilience. Potential new sustainable materials compositions need to be characterized not only for their physical properties, but also for their robustness in variable construction environments, compatibility with other materials, and their durability in severe exposures. Due to limited materials availability, environmental conditions, and different levels of technology available in different global regions, there is no single solution to improving sustainability, and there is a need to consider a range of approaches including those that may be incremental as well as potentially disruptive. Materials professionals, researchers and representatives from infrastructure owners are encouraged to attend and contribute to the discussion on needs for new approaches.

The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below:

  • Nanostructure of C-S-H and Hydration of Cementitious Materials
  • Advances in Chemical Admixtures
  • Measurement and Control of Rheology
  • Corrosion Science and Mitigation
  • Sustainability and Life Cycle Assessment
  • Durability and Service Life
  • Specialty Material
  • Artificial Intelligence-Based Performance Prediction

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by January 26, 2020. Please go the website for more information.
