2016 Conference

July 18-20, 2016 – Des Moines, Iowa

Ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) can be seen as one of the major breakthroughs in concrete technology in the last two centuries. The material has attracted the interest of many researchers, designers, practitioners, agencies, societies, contractors and suppliers through its excellent mechanical performance and its resistance against environmental degradation. UHPC has been investigated in numerous aspects around the world and the research effort is increasing based on the number of published journal papers and conference articles. UHPC unites people, disciplines and societies to achieve goals of high impact. Those goals are directed towards an enhancement of our safety, health and living conditions by positively impacting our environment, counteracting the degradation of the infrastructure, and by providing inspiring, sustainable and cost-efficient solutions to our current problems and to those to come.

The organizing committee supported by the International Scientific Advisory Committee welcomes you to the First International Interactive Symposium on Ultra-High Performance Concrete in Des Moines, Iowa. The interactive symposium will provide a platform to share knowledge about material and structural design, application examples and opportunities, to identify knowledge gaps and to grow the UHPC family dedicated to truly working together to achieve similar goals.
