|This year´s CIB Commission meeting of the working group “W023-Wall Structures” took place in Berlin, Germany October 10-11, 2011.|
The participants were welcomed by the commission coordinator Silvino Pompeu Santos and the host of the meeting Professor Wolfram Jaeger in cooperation with the Bundesvereinigung der Prüfingenieure für Bautechnik e.V. (BVPI).
The meeting started with a one-day workshop focused on experiences and applications regarding Eurocode 6. The second day of the meeting was reserved for news and actions within the commission and short summaries of CIB members regarding their several activities in the area of masonry.
