Professors Jimmy Kim and Xianming Shi will be moderating a special technical session at the spring 2023 ACI conference focusing on advances in the resilience, failure mitigation, and preservation of concrete bridges and structures. The convention is scheduled for April 2-6, 2023 in San Francisco.
Call for Abstracts
Of interest are presentations concerning a wide variety of technical aspects from laboratory experiments to field applications, involving the evaluation, design, and construction of load-bearing members and systems. Specific subjects include resilience, redundancy, performance reliability, fragility, recovery after seismic events, rehabilitation and preservation methods, uncertainty analysis, failure mechanisms, remaining service life, functionality metrics, and hazard mitigation. Case studies are considered appropriate. The session will bring to light recent research findings and best practices, and will provide an opportunity to discuss present challenges and technical demands. The session will benefit those who lead the design and construction of bridges and structures toward resilient and sustainable built-environments.
Deadline for Abstracts: January 31, 2022
1) Presentation title, 2) authors’ name, affiliation, mailing address, and email, and 3) abstract no more than 300 words
