CDCC is a series of conferences held every four years approximately and focusing on the durability, sustainability and field applications of Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) for construction and rehabilitation of structures (bridges, buildings, marine structures, etc.). With this new edition, we hope to continue the tradition of success initiated by the preceding conferences held in Sherbrooke in 1998, Montreal in 2002, and Quebec City in 2007 and 2011 with the expected participation of more and more engineers and researchers from every part of the world.
The conference will focus on durability of Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composites for construction and rehabilitation of structures with these materials. Undoubtedly, durability is the key element for successful application of FRP composites in construction where life cycle cost has, by large, proven to be the most important issue for new construction materials.
International Workshop on Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer Bar (July 18, 2017)
This workshop will provide a unique opportunity for end-users, contractors, consultants, engineers firms, GFRP bar manufacturers, and researchers to exchange up-to-date knowledge on the use of GFRP bars in concrete structures including challenges and opportunities. The workshop will consist of presentations by government authorities such as the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario, the Ministry of Transportation of Quebec, Florida Department of Transportation, and Texas Department of Transportation, consultants, GFRP manufacturers, researchers and open discussions.
Topics to be presented and discussed are:
