Event description

Description

fib: What’s happening? is organised by the UK Group of fib (The International Federation for Structural Concrete). This event will provide an overview of the ongoing work of three fib commissions that instigate research on structural concrete and publish industry guidance that goes beyond what established codes can offer.

Expert speakers will cover what's happening on:

  • Bond and anchorage (Commission 2)

  • Existing concrete structures (Commission 3)

  • Reinforcements (Commission 5)

Designers, contractors, academics and clients will:
