Description:
Offshore and Marine Concrete Structures: Past, Present, and Future
Meeting: Two-part technical Session on “Offshore and Marine Concrete Structures: Past, Present, and Future” at the ACI Concrete Convention and Exposition – Spring 2019, March 24-28, in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada; sponsored by ACI Committee 357, Offshore and Marine Concrete Structures
Solicited: Offshore and marine concrete structures have not received enough attention in the recent past, at least in the United States. The complexity and safety concerns associated with these structures are such that they probably need more attention compared to many other types of concrete structures. Also, offshore and marine concrete structures are so global in nature that there is a higher need for better coordination and synchronization of design, construction, inspection, and maintenance practices in different parts of the world. This two-part session will highlight the past, present, and future of marine concrete structures. Academics, researchers, practitioners, engineers, scientists, and manufactures from all across the world will benefit from this session.
Potential topics for the session include, but are not limited to, the following: 1) overview of offshore and marine concrete structures; 2) advancement in materials technology; 3) advancement in design practices; 4) advancement in construction practices; 5) advances in inspection, maintenance and repair practices; 6) innovative and emerging technologies; 7) international practices; 8) landmark and historic projects; 9) lessons learned from the past; and 10) a path forward for offshore and marine concrete structures.
Requirements: 1) paper title; 2) author/speaker name(s), title, organization, and contact information; and 3) an abstract not exceeding 300 words.
Deadlines: Abstracts are due by March 15, 2018; manuscript of selected papers are due by May 15, 2018. Papers will be peer reviewed and accepted papers will be included in an ACI Special Publication (SP).
