The Center for Infrastructure Engineering Studies (CIES) invites the campus community to attend a research seminar at 3 p.m. Friday, Aug. 28, in Room 318 Butler-Carlton Civil Engineering Hall. The seminar, titled “Bond Behavior Between Fiber-Reinforced Cementitious Matrix (FRCM) Composites and Concrete: State-of-the-Art and New Challenges,” will be given by Dr. Christian Carloni, an associate professor of structural mechanics at the University of Bologna in Italy.

The seminar will provide an overview of an ongoing investigation of the bond behavior of FRCM-concrete joints conducted in collaboration with Dr. Lesley Sneed, associate professor of civil, architectural and environmental engineering at Missouri S&T. This pioneering work includes an extensive experimental campaign, as well as analytical and numerical study. Carloni, an active member of two RILEM Committees on composites, will provide a state of the art on FRCM composites and discuss some of the unsolved issues related to this newly-developed type of composite.
