Concrete is an archetypical quasibrittle material. Its behavior poses difficult challenges for theoretical, experimental and computational research. IA-FraMCoS activity was originally the triennial conference series with focus on concrete, but presently it seeks to expand its activities to cover not only fundamental developments in concrete but also promotion of fracture-based approaches in engineering practice.
FraMCoS conferences serve as a forum of exchange of ideas and confrontation of practices. FraMCoS X welcomes paper contributions within, or spanning, the following themes:
A : Theoretical fracture mechanics
B : Experimental methodologies
C : Computational modeling
D : Durability/coupled problems
E : Novel cementitious and/or other quasi-brittle materials
F : Structural concrete applications.
Prospective authors are invited to submit detailed abstracts of one page following the guidelines provided on the FraMCoS X web-site.
