RILEM BITS&BOBS is changing next week!
Thank you for completing the questionnaire that we launched some weeks ago. We have received your feedback and we will implement a new mode of delivering our news. The pace of the newsletter issues will not change as we will continue to send them on Tuesday and Thursday, every week, but...

  • the issue on Tuesday will be dedicated to RILEM events, RILEM publications, RILEM TC outcomes and outsourced technical news, while

  • the issue on Thursday will contain the feature article “Did you know that…?”, reports of EAC courses/RILEM events and not-so-technical but still interesting outsourced news.

We will launch a questionnaire again in a couple of months to verify that have met your expectations. THANK YOU!


It seems that concrete flooring with a light polish is becoming a trendy/popular home feature... not to mention custom formed basins and  kitchen benchtops. Enjoy this article!

Did you know that...?
