CONSEC24 -10th International Conference on Concrete Under Severe Conditions - Environment & Loading

The objective of CONSEC conference is to focus on the advancements in the areas related to the design, construction, testing, and preservation of various construction materials and systems when exposed to severe environmental and structural loading conditions. The earlier CONSECs were held in Japan (1995), Norway (1998), Canada (2001), South Korea (2004), France (2007), Mexico (2010), China (2013), Italy (2016), and Brazil (2019). The COVID pandemic led to a delay in planning the next CONSEC. Now, the Construction Materials Research Group at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras feels proud and privileged to organize the 10th CONSEC in Chennai, India. Also, we plan two pre‐conference workshops, two post‐conference workshops. Researchers, students, faculty, and practitioners from across the world is expected to attend and make the CONSEC24 a huge success.
