March 23 and 24, 2024 in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
In Conjunction with ACI Spring Convention, Sponsored by ACI Committee 440
Conference info:

The 16th International Symposium on Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Reinforcement for Concrete Structures (FRPRCS) is organized by ACI Committee 440 and held on March 23 and 24, 2024 at the ACI Spring 2024 convention in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. FRPRCS-16 will attract interest from researchers, practitioners, owners, and manufacturers involved in the use of FRPs as reinforcement for concrete and masonry structures. This includes the use of FRP reinforcement in new construction and FRP for strengthening and rehabilitation of existing structures.

The papers/presentations not only will emphasize the experimental, analytical, and numerical validations of using FRP composites but also will aimed at providing insights needed for improving existing guidelines and developing design codes. New frontiers of FRP research were explored that provide information on emerging materials, systems, and applications for extreme events such as fire and earthquakes. The technical papers will also feature discussions on sustainability, novel applications, new technologies, and long-term field data that will result in greater acceptance and use of FRP composites technology by practitioners.

Conference Co-Chairs:

Dr. Ayman M. Okeil           (Louisiana State University, USA)
Dr. Pedram Sadeghian      (Dalhousie University, Canada)
Dr. John J. Myers             (Missouri University of Science and Technology, USA) 
Dr. Maria D. Lopez            (Modjeski and Masters Inc., USA)
