THE 13TH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON FERROCEMENT AND THIN FIBER REINFORCED INORGANIC MATRICES LYON, FRANCE, JUNE 21-23, 2021

 The conference will be held on the scheduled dates (ideally face-to-face but, where applicable, in hybrid or even fully virtual mode if circumstances require)

The main objective of Ferro-13 is to bring together researchers and practitioners in an international forum that addresses recent advances in ferrocement and mineral composite materials such as textile reinforced cement composites. It also aims to serve as a vehicle that strengthens relationships between industry, research laboratories, and universities interested in the subject.

Scope. Composite materials with a mineral matrix exist in various forms, including Ferrocement and thin reinforced concrete sections, Textile Reinforced Concrete (TRC), Textile Reinforced Mortar (TRM) and other fabric reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) composites. These inorganic matrix composites play a leading role in the field of new construction as well as for the rehabilitation and strengthening of existing structures.

The scientific and technological challenges of these composites, at the material and structural levels, are numerous, evolving, and complex. While all these composites share the use of an inorganic matrix, they can be significantly different due to the nature of their reinforcement, steel or non-steel. Recognizing the synergies between the two groups enables a faster understanding and progress in both fields. One aim of Ferro-13 is to foster the dialogue between specialists from the two groups. This progress is crucial to our current society whether it concerns the numerical transition in construction (3D construction, prefabrication off-site, etc…), or the ecological transition (low carbon footprint materials and structures, adapted application processes, multi-functionality, etc...).

Ferro-13 includes plenary sessions and oral presentations. The program will be designed to allow sufficient inter-communication among delegates and promote an active dialogue between academic researchers and industrial partners in order to bridge the gap between academia and pressing industrial needs.

Extended abstract templates are proposed on Word and pdf  to be submitted according to the fixed deadlines (https://ferro13.sciencesconf.org/resource/page/id/7).
