20 to 22/03/2017: Euromech Colloquium 582 - Tallinn (Estonia)
Euromech Colloquium 582
"Short Fibre Reinforced
Cementitious Composites and Ceramics"
20.-22. March 2017, Tallinn, Estonia
Venue: Innovation center "Mektory" at Tallinn University of Technology
The colloquium will focus on Short Fibre Reinfoced Cementitious Composites (SFRCC) and metal particle reinforced ceramics.
SFRCC are gaining rapidly more importance in civil engineering, most prominently Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SFRC). This is despite the fact, that construction codes are still under development, and that the material is still subject to research.
These composites share some mechanical properties with ceramics, furthermore, the methods used to analyse the micro-structure and particle orientations are similar or identical, despite the different chemistry and length scales. Also, in both cases the structure of the interface layer between matrix and particles is of special interest.
One of the aims of this colloquium is to bring together civil engineers, material scientists and researchers from micro-mechanics to discuss and possibly develop cooperations. Contributions are welcome and expected from experimental, numerical and theoretical view points.
