Concrete for Transportation Infrastructure


Concrete is at something of a crossroads: there are many opportunities and some threats. For these opportunities to change into beneficial practice, engineers, material scientists, architects, manufactureres and suppliers must focus on the changes that are required to champion concrete and maintain its dominance within the global constructuion industry.

The Concrete Technology Unit (CTU) of the University of Dundee organised this Congress to address these changes, under the theme Global Construction: Ultimate Concrete Opportunities 5-7 July 2005.

The three-day International Congress consisted of ten Events:

Concrete for Transportation Infrastructure forms the Proceedings of Event 2 and deals with issues such as bridges, tunnels, concrete pavements, marine infrastructure and regulations
