fib: what’s happening? is organised by the UK Group of fib (The International Federation for Structural Concrete). The commissions instigate research on structural concrete and publish industry guidance that goes beyond what established codes can offer. Designers, contractors, academics and clients will gain an understanding of the latest fib developments.
Expert speakers will cover what's happening on:
A comparison of the latest examples of using Ultra High Strength Precast Concrete for bridge construction.
An overview of the current and future perspectives of several topics such as durability planning and through life aspects, exposure zones and climate change and eco-efficient concrete durability.
A look at the commission 8 current organizational structure, the main outcomes (past and future), future events, and, the corresponding contribution into Model Code 2020.
Dr Robin Oval, researcher at Princeton University and winner of the fibUK Coolest Concrete Competition, will be presenting on The ACORN, the SQUIRREL and the OAK – a segmented concrete shell system as circular sustainable building floor thanks to automated construction, computational design and digital fabrication.
Chris is a member of fib Commission 3 on Existing Concrete Structures and Head of the UK Delegation to fib Technical Council. He was awarded the 2016 ICE Gold Medal. Chris is Chair of BSI bridge committee B525/10; he has written Designers’ Guides to Eurocodes and numerous standards and industry design guides. His projects include Dubai Metro Viaducts, New Medway Bridge, Forth Road Bridge and the Severn Bridge.
Rob is a Technical Director for Atkins with 35 years of experience in the planning, design, assessment and strengthening of bridge and civil engineering structures including complex arch bridges and steel box girder bridges. He has particular expertise in the requirements ‘design and build’ contracts, working for contractor clients to optimise buildabilty and Design for Manufacture and Assembly. He has worked on fib Task Group 6.5 Precast Bridges since 2014.
Jose C. Matos, Assistant Professor at University of Minho, graduated and obtained PhD in civil engineering, in the field of probabilistic-based assessment of existing structures. His research fields are asset management, life-cycle costs, risk evaluation and sustainability. He is author or co-author of more than 250 publications in international conferences and journals. Participate in international committees, as well as in national and international projects. Chairman of fib Commission 8, Vice-President of IABSE and EuroStruct Past-President.
Dr Robin Oval is currently a researcher at Princeton University. After graduating from École des Ponts ParisTech, Robin completed a PhD in computational design of structural patterns at École des Ponts and ETH Zurich. Then, Robin moved to the University of Cambridge as a postdoctoral research associate to work on automated construction of concrete shells. Robin also gained industry experience in structural engineering at Bollinger + Grohmann in Frankfurt for a year.
