Association - Open Call for materials for validation testing of new R3 Supplementary...
4th February 2019

Based on extensive internal testing and optimization work RILEM TC 267-TRM concluded that two new methods are most promising to measure the chemical reactivity of SCMs, i.e. the R3 heat release and the R3 bound water methods.
In the final third phase, these two methods will be applied to a broad range of new and conventional SCMs for further validation.

If you would like to submit your material for testing please register before the 15th of March 2019 at https://lmc.epfl.ch/rilem/

All applications will be screened and a selection of 50-100 materials will be made by the RILEM TC 267-TRM. For...

Association - Corrosion Science & Corrosion Control for Infrastructure
22nd January 2019

Each year, the course on Corrosion Science & Corrosion Control for Infrastructure (CSC2I) is organized by TU Delft in Spring (4 - 8 April 2019) and in Autumn (21 - 25 October 2019). 

CSC2I is an interdisciplinary course, encompassing fundamental aspects of corrosion science & technology, corrosion control and materials science for civil engineering. The course targets material classes as metals & alloys, concrete, coatings & composites. Corrosion-induced degradation and corrosion protection for main infrastructure will be discussed, including steel structures, with an emphasis on reinforced...

Association - Postdoctoral Research Fellowship 2019
19th November 2018

Project Title: Condition assessment, modelling and retrofitting strategies for ASR affected concrete dams in South Africa

Scope of Research:
Condition assessment, modelling and retrofitting strategies are to be investigated for South African concrete dams suffering from Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR). Based on either material investigation, i.e. actual cores taken from affected dam structures, or indirect assessment of material properties from inverse analysis based on relevant measurement data and appropriate ASR characteristics and field data, the stress condition of the dam walls is to be...
