2nd International Workshop on Durability of Reinforced Concrete under Combined Mechanical and Climatic Loads (2nd CMCL) will be held on February 21
  9:30-17:30 on February 21, 2008
at Keio Plaza Hotel Sapporo
  The major objective of the 2nd CMCL Workshop is to further contribute to the development of rational durability design by clarifying deterioration mechanisms under single action and combined actions (mechanical actions, multiple climatic actions, and simultaneous or consecutive mechanical and climatic actions) and to develop prediction methods for deterioration of materials and structures. In practice any structure is subjected to mechanical loads (actions). That means that durability of structures cannot be dealt with realistically when the influence of mechanical actions is neglected. Furthermore, knowledge on structural aspects (mechanics-related issues) and material aspects (durability-related issues) should be deepened and combined in the future. After the 1st CMCL Workshop, held in Qingdao in 2005, experts from all over the world will get together again to exchange latest information and to have in-depth discussions.
