The programme for the eighth biennial Advanced Composites in Construction (ACIC) has been announced for the conference that will take place on 5th-7th September 2017 at The Edge, University of Sheffield, UK.
Supported by Tony Gee & Partners and Construction Composites, ACIC 2017 will focus on current topics within the construction industry with the purpose of highlighting 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.
This conference attracts practicing engineers, asset managers, researchers and representatives of regulatory bodies and promotes an active exchange of scientific and technical information on the rapidly changing scene of advanced composites in construction.
The program includes technical presentations with an opportunity to hear about the latest research and developments on materials and products, cutting-edge applications, design protocol, case studies and statistical analysis.
