International Conference on Condition Assessment, Rehabilitation & Retrofitting of Structures - CARRS 2023

Condition assessment and strengthening of civil infrastructure is a complex and inter-disciplinary field. Considering the socio-economic aspects related to the proper maintenance of civil infrastructure, the condition of structures needs to be periodically assessed. To improve the performance, the structures need to be rehabilitated or retrofitted after proper assessment. Otherwise, the potential losses can be very significant and cannot be accurately quantified. Advancements in construction technology and materials have made the condition assessment and strengthening process easier.

To fill the knowledge gap in this highly interdisciplinary area, regular conduct of workshops/conferences is required. International conference on Condition Assessment Rehabilitation and Retrofitting of Structures “CARRS-2023” aims to achieve this objective. CARRS-2023 provides a platform for the research community, practicing engineers, contractors, academicians, and government agencies to jointly discuss various aspects of rehabilitation and retrofitting.
