ACIC 2015 Open for Abstracts

The seventh biennial Advanced Composites in Construction (ACIC) conference will be taking place on 9-11 September, 2015, at St John’s College, Cambridge, UK, and is inviting relevant abstracts to be submitted now.

Bringing together practicing engineers, asset managers, researchers and representatives of regulatory bodies, the conference will focus on topics within the construction industry which highlight the use of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials in new and existing all-FRP structures as well as strengthening, refurbishment and reinforcement applications in traditional infrastructure. The aim is to promote a stimulating exchange of scientific and technical information on the rapidly changing scene of advanced composites in construction.

Abstracts should initially be limited to 250 words and must include contact details of the corresponding author and any affiliation of co-authors. These should be emailed to Sue Keighley at: events@netcomposites.com, by 21 November, 2014.

Technical presentations provide an opportunity to impart research and knowledge on materials and products, cutting-edge applications, design protocol, case studies and statistical analysis, and all submissions are reviewed by a committee of experts.

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

  • Strengthening of concrete and masonry structures,
  • Strengthening of metallic and timber structures,
  • Internal reinforcement and pre-stressing,
  • Wholly polymeric structures,
  • FRP Materials and systems,
  • Long term performance and durability,
  • Damage mechanics and failure criteria,
  • Analysis and design,
  • Inspection and monitoring.

Key dates are:
 
Deadline for abstracts                                   21st November 2014 
Notification of acceptance                             23rd January 2015
