DISC 2017: High tech concrete - where technology and engineering meet
This half day conference will provide practitioners with a valuable update on the latest developments in concrete technology and their application to structural engineering. Speakers from industry and academia will cover fibre reinforced cementitious composites, special concrete mixes and modelling complex geometry.
DISC (Developments in Structural Concrete), now in its 5th year, is brought to you by fibUK (the UK group of the International Federation for Structural Concrete).
