Capacity Assessment of Corroded Reinforced Concrete Structures

The capacity assessment of corroding reinforced concrete and prestressed structures has become a most relevant engineering task with significant social and economic impact. The need to develop codes for use in the practice spurs the research community to establish and share methods to determine material deterioration and mechanical properties, member resistance and structural capacity.

Call for Abstract
The CACRCS DAY welcome all the contributions related to the behaviour of reinforced concrete structures damaged by corrosion both with numerical and experimental approaches.

Paper Submission
Authors willing to present their work at the CACRCS DAYS 2020 are kindly invited to submit an abstract in accordance with the sessions of the workshop. The abstract should not exceed 750 characters.
Accepted papers will be included in the Proceedings of the Workshop that will be send to Scopus-Database. The template for abstract and paper is available on the CTE website (

The most excellent paper presented by a fib young member will be awarded and the most excellent paper presented in the workshop will be awarded.

Special Sessions

Special sessions are organised during the workshop. Authors are kindly invited to select the session where they will present their papers.
At the beginning of each session, chairpersons prepare two education presentations: the first one illustrates the fundamental, while the second one the research challenges of the topic treated in the session. Therefore, the virtual workshop offers a didactic material for engineers, practitioners and a forum for scientists, concrete technologists, researchers, academics to improve knowledge about corrosion of reinforced concrete structures.
