Computational Modelling of Concrete and Concrete Structures, March 24-27, 2014, St. Anton am Alberg, Austria

Conference Topics

Conference topics and invited papers will cover both computational mechanics and computational modelling aspects of the analysis and the design of cementitious materials and concrete structures:

Computational Modelling of Concrete and (Fibre-) Reinforced Materials and Masonry

Modelling categories include plasticity, damage, micro-mechanics and fracture mechanics approaches and respective discretisation methods; multi-scale methods and models for fibrematrix interactions; multi-physics methods, considering various couplings between mechanical, hygral, thermic and chemical processes; creep, shrinkage, hydration models; rate dependency, dynamic loading; among others.

Computational Modelling of Concrete Structures

Plain, reinforced, prestressed and fibre-reinforced concrete structures, masonry structures, robustness, serviceability and ultimate load behaviour, reliability assessment and safety concepts, cyclic loading and seismic analysis, durability and environmental aspects, structural repair and self-healing, performance under extreme conditions, e.g. fire, blast, ...
