Int. Workshop on GRC Research

FRIDAY 20th SEPTEMBER 2019

Czech Technical University (CVUT)

The Workshop will review and discuss the current state of research related to Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC / GFRC) and will consider feasibility, scope and proposals for research in support of the GRC industry (design, production, construction),
  on Friday 20th September 2019,
  at:
  The Penthouse,
  Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics
  Czech Technical University
  PRAGUE
  CZECH REPUBLIC

Any relevant topic will be considered, with a focus on::

  • Improvement in performance of GRC and a greater exploitation of its potential.
  • Better understanding of fracture processes and their control in service life.
  • Development of reliable numerical models for prediction of GRC behaviour/properties.
  • Research in support of Standards and performance testing regimes related to GRC.
  • Potential sources of funding for GRC-related research.

GRC Workshop Participant:

Staff from academic and industrial research institutions with past/current activity in GRC or from centres with a related research. Researchers new to this subject area, with facilities and interest in GRC research. Staff from companies producing GRC, its constituent materials and GRC structural designers.

Number of participants will be limited to 50 in order to allow everyone to engage actively in discussions.

GRC Workshop Format:

Two morning and one afternoon sessions (9:00-12:30 and 14:00-15:15) followed by summing-up (15:30-16:00). Each session to be moderated by a session chairman. Tea/coffee at registration (from 08:00h) and at breaks. Buffet lunch. Optional visit to research facilities (nanotechnology etc.) of the Faculty of Civil Engineering after the Workshop.

Registration:

Number of participants will be limited to 50, on a first-come first-served basis, in order to allow everyone to engage actively in discussions.
Registration fee:
  GRCA Members - £50
