Capacity Assessment of Corroded Reinforced Concrete Structures

CACRCS DAYS 2021 edition will focus on practical engineering
applications achieved with consolidated research works on corroded reinforced
concrete and prestressed concrete structures.
Two dedicated round tables have been organised, the first one on information
of pre-normative and normative documents, and the second one to share the experiences
and needs of transport infrastructure stakeholders.
Since 2019 the Workshop has seen the participation of experts in the capacity
assessment of corroded reinforced concrete structures. The workshop is open to early
researchers, experts and practitioners.
CACRCS DAYS context, professional engineers can find a community of people able
to assist in practice problem solving and in making- decisions process for the
maintenance of existing structures.

Special Sessions


The CACRCS DAYS welcome all contributions related to the behaviour of
reinforced concrete, fibre reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete structures
damaged by corrosion both with numerical and experimental approaches.
