Concrete Pavement Conference 2015
The German Road and Transportation Research Association (FGSV) cordially invites professionals working in this sector to the Concrete Pavement Conference 2015 in Ulm.
Following the presentation of the Young Engineer Award and the opening presentation, delegates can look forward to a series of papers on 'Experience from the field'. The range of papers in this series covers PPP projects from the perspective of the conceding authority, the application of the Guidelines for the computational dimensioning of concrete pavement structures for trafficked areas (RDO Beton) in contracts governed by the Regulations on Contract Awards for Public Works (VOB), and practical examples of the construction of end sections.
The second day of the conference begins with an international overview of developments and innovations in the field of concrete pavement construction. This will be followed by a paper on the opportunities for concrete pavements resulting from sustainability policies in Europe and a report on topical issues in Austria and Switzerland. The third and final series of papers will cover the latest research findings on concrete pavements (including the central test road ZEUS, noise-optimised grinding, the construction and sealing of joints, the latest findings on thermal damage, and continuously reinforced concrete pavements with thin flexible wearing courses).
