The colloquium will focus on Short Fibre Reinfoced Cementitious Composites (SFRCC) and metal particle reinforced ceramics.
SFRCC are gaining rapidly more importance in civil engineering, most prominently Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SFRC). This is despite the fact, that construction codes are still under development, and that the material is still subject to research.
These composites share some mechanical properties with ceramics, despite the different chemistry and length scales.

One of the aims of this colloquium is to bring together civil engineers, material scientists and researchers from micro-mechanics to discuss and possibly develop cooperations. Contributions are welcome and expected from experimental, numerical and theoretical view points.

Topics (non-exhaustive list):
- measurement of fibre orientations
- characterization of micro-structure
- constitutive modeling
- fracture and cracking behaviour
- numerical modeling
- experiments

Presentation of work-in-progress and from PhD students are welcome, we aim at creating a friendly atmosphere and encourage discussions.



Submission of abstracts by e-mail to AND ( please use the Word or LaTeX templates).

Extended deadline: 7.1.2017 (extended)

Conference Fee

The conference fee for EUROMECH-members is 200 Euro (early bird price), for non-members the membership-fee (24 Euro) will be added to the fee. Late registration fee is 250 Euro (for members).

The conference fee covers: admission to presentations, book of abstracts, coffee breaks, welcome reception, banquett, guided tour through Tallinn Old Town, guided tour of the Virtual Reality and Visualization labs of the university.

For PhD students: We offer a reduced fee of 150 Euro (200 Euro late registration) for EUROMECH members (for non members 24 Euro will be added). The PhD student fee does not include the banquett.

Payment instruction
