The 9th international conference on advanced composites in construction, ACIC 2019, is inviting abstracts on relevant subjects.

The conference takes place from 3-5 September 2019 at the University of Birmingham, UK and features topics within the construction industry that highlight the use of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials in all-FRP structures as well as strengthening, refurbishment and reinforcement applications in traditional infrastructure.

Prospective participants are invited to submit a short abstract, to include the contact details of the corresponding author and affiliation of co-authors here by 9 November 2018.

Proposed sessions for the conference should include, but are not limited to:

  • Strengthening of concrete and masonry structures
  • Strengthening of metallic and timber structures
  • Internal reinforcement and prestressing
  • Wholly polymeric structures
  • FRP materials and systems
  • Long term performance and durability
  • Damage mechanics and failure criteria
  • Analysis and design
  • Inspection and monitoring

The event will also feature a poster competition for the next generation of structural engineers to showcase their research.
