Abstract: Concrete is the most widely used material in the world. Approximately 60 billion cubic
meters were consumed in 2012 alone. The durability and serviceability of concrete are critical
in helping improve people’s safety and comfort. The importance of these concepts become
especially evident under severe environmental or loading conditions.
The international conference series, “Concrete under severe conditions-environment and
loadings CONSEC” is a unique event specially focused on the durability and service
performance of concrete structures that are subjected to severe environment and/or severe
loading conditions. CONSEC conferences have been held six times since 1995, in Sapporo
(Japan, 1995), Tromsř (Norway, 1998), Vancouver (Canada, 2001), Seoul (Korea, 2004),
Tours (France, 2007), and Yucatán (México, 2010). Following these highly successful events,
the 7th CONSEC conference, named CONSEC13, will be held in Nanjing, China, from
September 23 to 25, 2013.
The CONSEC13 proceedings contain over 170 high quality peer-reviewed scientific and
practitioners’ papers from a variety of topics in concrete research. They provide cutting edge
knowledge in 14 themes: Hydration and microstructure of cement-based materials; Physical
properties of cement-based systems; Transport properties of cement-based materials;
Dimensional stability in concrete; Performance of concrete under marine environment;
Performance of concrete under other severe environment; Performance of concrete under
severe loading; Performance of concrete under severe environment and loading; Simulation of
structure and properties of cement-based materials; Field Performance of concrete; New
design concept and methods for long term performance; Service life prediction; Special
approaches for concrete structures under uniquely severe condition; Other materials and
The following six distinguished professors will give keynote lectures covering six important
areas of the conference:
Prof. Makoto Hisada (Tohoku University) ;
Prof. György L. Balázs (Budapest University of Technology and Economics);
Prof. Changwen Miao (Southeast University);
Prof. Surendra P. Shah (Northwestern University);
Prof. Wei Sun (Southeast University);
Prof. Byung Hwan Oh (Seoul National University)
In addition, there will be a special plenary session to honor Prof. Koji Sakai, the founder of
CONSEC, and Prof. Wei Sun, the Chair of the Advisory Committee to CONSEC13.
Finally, we would like to give our sincere thanks to the members of scientific committee for
their effort in reviewing and finalizing papers for the proceedings, to the organizing
committee for their hard work in putting things in order and preparing details to make the
conference a success, and to the Jiangsu Research Institute of Building Science and Jiangsu
Bote New Materials Co. Ltd for their generous financial support.
