Did you know that...?
Did you know that fly ash applications are not limited to concrete production, but they also include cosmetics and toothpaste? Learn about the reactivity tests of this supplementary cementitious materials here.
LAST CALL!!!! The deadline to submit your contribution to the 3rd INTERNATIONAL RILEM WORKSHOP ON CONCRETE DURABILITY AND SERVICE LIFE PLANNING, in Haifa - Israel - from 14 to 16 January 2020, is tomorrow, 15 November 2019.   The object of this workshop is to discuss the future trends in research, development and practical engineering applications related to durable concrete construction. A focus of the workshop will be the design and construction of concrete structures exposed to different environmental conditions and mechanical loading. The themes include concrete curing, cracking in concrete structures, corrosion of steel in concrete, thermal and hygral effects, concrete in cold climate and under high temperatures, recycling and other environmental aspects, alkali-silica reaction, chloride and sulfate attack, marine structures, transport phenomena, durability design, microstructure of concrete and volume changes and life cycle assessment.
Graphene-enhanced asphalt has been recently used on a section of road in Oxfordshire, UK. Listen to the full radio interview of Giulio Cesareo, founder and CEO of Directa Plus PLC, here.
upcoming rilem events

Although the deadline for the submission of a conference contribution closed on 1 June this year, you are still on time to buy your tickets to attend the FIRST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON 3-D PRINTING AND TRANSPORTATION, to be held in Washington, DC, USA, on 20 and 21 November 2019.   The objective of this conference is to share knowledge and information on how 3-D printing in construction and manufacturing is impacting the transportation industry.   This is a RILEM co-sponsored event. Some RILEM members of TC 276-DFC "Digital fabrication with cement-based materials" contributed to the organization of this event by taking part into its Scientific Committee.
