Due to the special circumstances imposed by COVID-19, many events are being postponed or cancelled. Please look through the calendar to see which events are affected.
The aim of the Conference is to present and review the latest achievements in the MODELING, TESTING, DESIGN, CONTROL, and HEALTH MONITORING of masonry structures strengthened with composite materials.
Composite materials with continuous fibers embedded in a polymer or cementitious matrix are herein considered as strengthening techniques for masonry.
Seismic vulnerability mitigation, durability, and temperature influence are suitable keywords to be discussed at the conference.
Presentation of laboratory tests and case studies described thoroughly and in detail, are strongly encouraged.
The previous editions were in Venice (2000, 2004, 2009) hosted by Università IUAV di Venezia, in Ravenna (t2014) hosted by University ALMA MATER of Bologna and in Bologna (2017, 2019) hosted by University ALMA MATER of Bologna.
Now, in 2021, the new Online edition will present innovative developments. The new field of FRCM (Fabric Reinforced Cementitious Matrix) seems very interesting for compatibility with ancient Masonry. New types of fibers are on the table: PBO, basalt and special steel, and more.
The threat to Heritage due to earthquake encourages us to use the most appropriate technology to preserve the monuments.
The composites are a coherent answer.
