Capacity Assessment of Corroded Reinforced Concrete Structures: from Research to Daily Engineering Evaluation

Info 2023 edition

From research to daily engineering evaluation

CACRCS DAYS 2023 edition will focus on practical engineering applications achieved with consolidated research on corroded reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete structures. The main line of the workshop starts from the analysis of material characteristics, moves to the evaluation of the structural behaviour of corroded members, ending with the prediction of the remaining service life of corroded structures.

Since 2019 the Workshop has seen the participation of experts in the capacity assessment of corroded reinforced concrete structures. The workshop is open to young researchers, experts and practitioners.

In the CACRCS DAYS context, professional engineers can find a community of people able to assist in practical problem solving and in decision-making procedures for the assessment and maintenance of existing structures. Moreover, a Round Table will be scheduled to stimulate the debate on the analysis of available codes and guidelines for the evaluation of existing structures and on the gaps and future research fields identified on the basis of the contributions submitted to this workshop.
