Partners and Sponsors:
The alkaline reactivity of aggregates is defined as the susceptibility of aggregates to react with alkalis contained in concrete, which may result in a reduction in the durability of the concrete and, consequently, its destruction.
The aim of this event is to facilitate a constructive dialogue between researchers and practicioners in order to foster a better understanding of roads sustainability and ecoinfrastructures.
Main topics of the conference:
• winter maintenance standards
• systems and materials of winter maintenance
• climate change effect on winter maintenance (PIARC)
