Activity: Attending an event › Participating in or organising workshops, courses, seminars etc.
The Nordic Workshop “Concrete in arctic conditions” was organized under the auspices of the ongoing Norwegian research project; Durable Advanced Concrete Structures (DaCS). The research project DaCS aims to increase the knowledge of sustainable and competitive reinforced concrete structures in harsh environment and is funded by The Research Council of Norway, in addition to several industrial partners. The workshop was divided into 2 sections: Ice abrasion and Frost resistance, which were related to the Ph.D. projects under the directive of the aforementioned project: “Experimental study of concrete-ice abrasion and concrete surface topography modification” by Guzel Shamsutdinova and “Production and documentation for frost durable concrete” by Andrei Shpak. The event was hosted by NTNU, Institute for materials and structures. The main goal was to increase the knowledge within ice abrasion and frost resistance of concrete and to provide exchange of information and further development among the participants.
