EURO-C 2022 continues the series of conferences on computational methods and numerical models for the analysis of concrete and concrete structures.
Based upon the success of the first conference and its subsequent amalgamation with the Delft Concrete Mechanics Colloquia, the series of EURO-C conferences continued with venues always located in the Austrian Alps, such as in Zell am See (1990), Innsbruck (1994), Bad Gastein (1998), St. Johann im Pongau (2003), Mayrhofen in Zillertal (2006), Rohrmoos/ Schladming (2010), St. Anton am Arlberg (2014), and Bad Hof- gastein (2018). EURO-C 2022 will be organised in Obergurgl, located in the Ötztal, Austria.
Keeping the spirit of this long-standing tradition, EURO-C 2022 is aiming to bring together researchers and engineers involved in computational modelling of cementitious materials and the model-based design of concrete structures to review and discuss research advancements and to assess the applicability and robustness of methods and models for the analysis and design of concrete, fibre-reinforced and prestressed concrete structures, as well as masonry structures in engineering practice. Recent developments include methods of machine learning, novel discretisation methods, probabilistic models, and consideration of micro-structural aspects in multi-scale settings. Overall computational robustness of numerical predictions and mathematical rigour have further increased, implying the need for validation and respective experimental programmes.
The organisers hope, that EURO-C 2022 will continue to identify those research results and concepts which have proved to be robust, permitting a reliable, high-quality analysis and design of concrete structures, assessment of serviceability and safety of such structures and adoption in codes of practice or recommendations.
