The German Road and Transportation Research Association (FGSV) cordially invites professionals working in this sector to attend the Concrete Pavement Conference 2019 in Aschaffenburg. As usual, attendees will be able to catch up on all the latest developments and news from the field of concrete pavement construction.
After the presentation of the Otto Graf Foundation’s Young Engineer Award in the category ‘Transport Construction’ and a lecture by last year’s winner, the first series of lectures, ‘Concrete pavements: a success story’, will begin. This series will focus not only on lessons learned from the past but also on current challenges and solutions. The second series of lectures is devoted to ‘Research and Development’ and in particular to implementation. Topics covered in this series include ‘texture grinding’, the experience gained in Poland with glass fibre-reinforced CRCP, and innovative solutions involving pre-cast concrete elements. The second day will begin with a key area of FGSV’s activities: technical regulations. Here too, the focus will be on application. For example, there will be a lecture on the practical experience gained with the ‘Additional technical conditions of contract and directives for the structural maintenance of traffic areas – concrete pavements 2015’ (ZTV BEB-StB 15) and a report on the first five years of the application of part 1 of the ‘Information sheet on the planning, design, and construction of concrete traffic area pavements’ (M VaB). The conference will be rounded off with the results of research into ‘Data collection and analysis as the basis for computer-aided design’.
The conference is being held in the Aschaffenburg Congress Hall (Stadthalle am Schloss): the perfect location for lectures, company presentations, meetings, and discussions. The joint evening event at the end of the first day offers plenty of opportunities for networking.
Aschaffenburg is also a highly convenient location, being only 40 km from Frankfurt am Main and easy to reach. The city’s tourist campaign focuses on its southern flair. With the conference taking place at the end of September, visitors are likely to get a taste of this flair before autumn sets in.
We look forward to seeing you in Aschaffenburg!
