Research as a driving force
Panel 1, “Application-oriented Research for Concrete”, will showcase the potential for innovation offered by concrete. State-of-the-art acceleration technologies, new findings on the workability and durability of ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) and the behavior of high-
performance concrete in the event of fire will be presented. Other topics to be discussed include the role of superabsorbents in concrete construction and the implications of the new Model Code for concrete structures.
Panel 5, “From Research to Practice”, will present new opportunities for...
