COST Action TU1404 will host a training school on ‘MODELLING OF CEMENT BASED MATERIALS AND STRUCTURES’ during the week of 9-13 October 2017 at the Silesian University of Technology in Poland.
The program has intricate connections with the objectives of TU1404, with particular emphasis on subjects related to Workgroup 2 ‘MODELLING OF CEMENT BASED MATERIALS AND STRUCTURES’ (see details in this link).
This course offers an opportunity that is mainly targeted to young researchers (normally enrolled in PhD programmes) and allowing them to have a deep contact with several subjects related to modelling of cement-based materials at different levels (from micro to macroscopic modelling).
The course will cover important topics related to modelling of cement-based materials and structures with a special focus on the aspects related to service life:
The course consists of lectures and practical sessions with numerical exercises to be solved by the students. All the necessary notes will be provided before the course.
A tentative program of the course can be found here. Please mind that the program can be slightly modified.
The total work load is approximately 140 hours corresponding to 5 ECTS credits, including the contact time during the course, the preparatory reading assignments given before the course, the preparation of a poster presentation at the start of the course, and the oral presentation at the end of the course. Certificates will be issued based on active participation in the entire course and the final evaluation.
Registration is compulsory. Registration is free and covers participation in the course and coffee breaks; lunches can be provided by the Organiser if booked in advance (further details will be given to the accepted participants via e-mail).
To register please fill in the following form.
Registration must be made before 15th June 2017. However, the number of attendants is limited to 30, so early registration is recommended to ensure vacancy.
PhD students, Master-students, researchers and practicing engineers with a background in civil engineering, materials science, architectural engineering or similar. All lectures will be given in English.
Trainees are expected to arrange their own travel and accommodation. The recommendations will be posted on the webpage of the event in due time.
