UHPFRC Symposium held in Marseille

The 2nd International Conference on the topic of Ultra-High Performance Fiber-Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC) took place in Marseille, the 2013 European City of Culture. The venue of the event was the just recently with numerous UHPFRC precast parts erected Museum of the Civilizations of Europe and the Mediterranean; organizers were the AFGC, Rilem and fib. Leading scientists from all over the world lectured on current developments in the construction material UHPFRC and used the opportunity for an exchange of experience.
