Advanced course on creep and shrinkage effects in concrete structures - Udine 23/27 of May 2011


International Advanced Professional Training Course 

Analysis of Creep and Shrinkage Effects in Concrete Structures

Coordinators: Mario A. Chiorino (Turin, Italy) and Domingo J. Carreira (Chicago, IL, USA)

May 23 to 27, 2011  

CISM International Centre for Mechanical Sciences

Udine, Italy

with the patronage of ACI American Concrete Institute



The other invited lecturers are: Mamdouh M. El-Badry (University of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta, Canada), Ian N. Robertson (University of Hawaii, Honolulu, HI, USA), Mario Sassone (Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy), Carlos C. Videla (Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Santiago, Chile).


The course deals with advanced computational approaches for analysis of structural effects of time-dependent behavior of concrete, with special attention to creep and shrinkage, in modern complex and sequential reinforced/prestressed concrete and composite steel-concrete constructions. Typical examples are large span cantilever and cable-stayed bridges, cast-on-form or cantilever built concrete arches, concrete or steel and concrete high-rise and supertall buildings.


The computational formats are in accordance with the harmonized formats developed in recent years at the international level, especially by the first of the two coordinators, in pre-standard and standard ambients (CEB, fib, CEN-Eurocodes, ACI), with particular regard to CEB Model Code 1990 and related Design Manuals "Structural Effects of Time-dependent Behaviour of Concrete" (1984, 1993), fib Structural Concrete Textbook 2010, fib New Model Code 2010 presently in its final editorial stage, Eurocode 2-Part 2: Concrete bridges, and  ACI Guide 209.3R "Analysis of Creep and Shrinkage Effects in Concrete Structures" under final approval.
