“New challenges in concrete construction” is this year’s slogan of the already twelfth conference on concrete components that will be held by the HTWK Leipzig University of Applied Sciences on March 16, 2017 in Leipzig.
The conference intends to inform on the state-of-the-art in research and current development trends in concrete, reinforced and prestressed concrete construction. It is dedicated to background information on and updating of Eurocodes, building material innovations and new requirements on planning and design of concrete components.

Ullrich Kluge, German Institute of Construction Technology; “Eurocode in practice: structural and minimum reinforcement in accordance with EC2” given by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Klaus Holschemacher, HTWK Leipzig; “New building materials: Carbon Concrete Composite” by Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. E.h. Manfred Curbach and Dr.-Ing.
