International Conference on Composite Structures (ICCS)

Researcher Sabīne Upnere from Riga Technical University participated in the International Conference on Composite Structures (ICCS). The conference was organized by the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Porto, Portugal, and it took place from July 19 to 22.

The ICCS is an annual conference and this year it is being held for the 25th time. The scientific conference covers the widest range of topics related to composite materials, including the research of various types of concrete and fibre reinforced concrete, which is valuable for achieving the goals of the ICONDE project. On July 20 and 21, Sabine participated in the poster sessions and presented the poster "Fracture of fibre reinforced concrete. Identification of crack face bridging law, softening approach". The poster demonstrates the results obtained in WP3 related to the modeling of material mechanical properties.
