AFGC – UHPRC 2024 (Menton, France)

October 21 - October 23

For interest of IABSE British Group members, this conference will be hosted by the French Association of Civil Engineers in Menton on the French Riviera:


Seven years after the 2017 Ultra-High-Performance Fiber-Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC) conference held in Montpellier, focused on the know-how and applications carried out with UHPFRC, projects and constructions using UHPRFCs have clearly experienced a marked increase in Europe, in North America and in Asia. The objective of the 2024 UHPFRC International Symposium organized by AFGC in Menton (French Riviera) is to update additional experience acquired in the knowledge and use of UHPFRCS: design of structures, elements and works; retrofitting and repair of structures; industrial realizations; large-scale applications.

Innovative achievements looking to the future

Research, standards and regulations at the service of innovation

A material for the environment: durability, saving resources, reducing CO2 emissions

The symposium will present the most recent effective UHPFRC realizations in civil engineering, building, facilities, equipment and infrastructure, both for new construction and rehabilitation. It will deal with researches, regulations and standards developed at the international level to facilitate the design, justify the safety and the reliability of UHPFRC structures. It will detail the performance offered by these materials towards environment: use in the field of eco-design, saving of resources, durability, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, life cycle analysis, etc.

During the three days presentations in plenary and parallel technical sessions will address: Applications and achievements in UHPFRC: Civil Engineering and Buildings; Codifications, Regulations, Standardizations; Environmental aspect: decarbonization, saving materials, recycling, eco-design

A special student session “my UHPFRC solution” will be organized in order to promote the knowledge and the use of UHPFRC by new generations called to further develop constructive innovations in the service of a more sustainable and more responsible built heritage.
