FraMCoS-8 - 8th International Conference on Fracture Mechanics of Concrete and Concrete Structures

The IA-FraMCoS (International Association of Fracture Mechanics for Concrete and Concrete Structures) was founded in 1992 in USA to promote and advance the theoretical and experimental aspects of fracture mechanics and cracking of concrete structures.

The activities of IA-FraMCoS provide great advances on new technological development in concrete materials and concrete structures.

Among the important roles of IA-FraMCoS, the primary one is to organize the international conferences on a triennial basis to communicate and compile recent advances on the related subject areas.

The major topics for FraMCoS-8 conference are:

A. Recent advances in fracture mechanics of concrete.
B. Fracture and cracking behavior of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures.
C. High-performance, high strength concretes and FRC.
D. Advances in structural design codes.
E. Structural monitoring and assessment.
F. Repair and retrofitting, practical applications.
G. Durability and corrosion-induced cracking.
H. Interface fracture and debonding phenomena.
I. Constitutive relations, time-dependent effects, cyclic and fatigue behavior.
J. Brick masonry, concrete-like and quasi-brittle materials.
K. Computational aspects in fracture mechanics of concrete.

In FraMCoS-8 conference, in addition to the individual submission of papers within the overall themes of the conference, experts are encouraged to organize sessions in advance on their specific topics. Each session organizer is expected to recruit about 6 — 8 papers for a session and serves as chairperson. Prospective session organizers are recommended to submit the session outline including the title of the session, and the titles and authors of the papers, through the conference web site.
