BACKGROUND

The sustainable development of the building industry as well as new applications require concretes of specific properties. These concretes prove useful in terms of laboratory testing, but difficulties arise in their practical application and in behaviour prediction as they diverge from common routines, norms and recommendations. The putting of non-traditional concretes into practice represents therefore an interdisciplinary problem. The conference will focus on the exchange of the experience of the research, preparation, testing and application of these materials.

We know that today´s non traditional cements and concretes may become traditional tomorrow. It would be a wonderful thing if even this conference contributed its share towards this goal.


TOPICS

1. Geopolymers
2. Alkali-Activated Materials
3. Clinker-free concrete
4. Concrete with mineral and chemical admixtures
5. High Performance Concrete
6. Durability of non-traditional concrete
7. Sustainable development
8. Damage and fracture of non-traditional concrete
9. Quality control of non-traditional concrete
10. Construction from non-traditional concrete

ORGANISATION OF THE CONFERENCE

The conference is organised by Brno University of Technology – Faculties of Civil Engineering and Chemistry, VSB–TUO: Technical University of Ostrava – Faculty of Civil Engineering, and Institute of Physics of Materials, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, v. v. i., and it is supported by Czech Concrete Society (CBS). The conference is focused on both theoretical and practical problems in the field of non-traditional cements and concretes.

VENUE – BRNO CITY

The 7th International Conference Non-Traditional Cement and Concrete will be held in Brno in June 2023. Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic and the metropolis of South Moravia. About 400.000 people live there. There are a lot of cultural and other sights (see for example https://en.brno.cz/).

Brno is located 200 km from Prague and 150 km from Vienna (Austria). There are international airports in the cities. A lot of express trains and buses connect these cities with Brno.

Brno has a small international airport but the connection services are fairly limited (http://www.brno-airport.cz/en/).

The conference will be held at the Hotel Continental Brno, Kounicova 6, 602 00 Brno, Czech Republic, https://www.continentalbrno.cz/en/. We are negotiating special conference rates in this hotel.
