This annual update provides an overview of the ongoing work carried out by two fibUK commissions and the fib model code.

fibUK: 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.

Experts cover what's happening on

Fib Model Code for Concrete Structures by Stuart Matthews
The presentation introduces the historical development of the fib model code, provides a brief overview of the MC2020 contents, and illustrates the philosophical basis for MC 2020.
 
Commission 1 by Jessica Sandberg
The presentation provides a summary of Commission 1 and specifically focuses on the ongoing development of the State-of-the-art document, highlighting the current design approach adopted for integral bridges.
 
Commission 7 by Domenico Asprone
This presentation explores fib’s commitment to sustainability in concrete structure, share ongoing activities within Commission 7 and discusses the expected outcomes of the Special Activity Group.
