45th Annual Convention 2017
Are concrete durability problems a thing of the past?
6th April 2017

Concrete is the means of creating modern superstructures and buildings. As such the intention is that it should be long lasting. However, the last 50 years or so have shown that concrete can be vulnerable given hostile environments and demanding specifications.

As a result of this experience innovation in materials and design have resulted in concrete that will be durable – or has it? Diagnostic techniques have improved allowing better judgements on concrete’s wellbeing to be made in awide range of applications.

These issues will be presented and discussed in order to reconfirm or question ongoing assumptions about concrete and the methods used to both make and exploit its capabilities.

This year the Convention is being held at the The Queens Hotel, Leeds LS1 1PJ
