UAE new fib member



The fib is honoured and delighted to welcome the United Arab Emirates as a new fib member. The UAE is our 44th national member. The Society of Engineers of the United Arab Emirates was formally founded on 3 April 1979 to facilitate the increasing demands in professional expertise and accreditation of the engineers in the UAE. The society is a semi-government sector and a non-profit organisation who strives to provide great services to its 40,000 members.

Mr Mohamad Khodr Al-Dah is the UAE Head of Delegation and Prof Sherif Yehia is the UAE deputy.

Welcome to the UAE!


fib YMG Tokaj



After its official launching at the fib Symposium in Maastricht last June, the fib Young Members Group (fib YMG) has participated in the Central European Congress of Concrete Engineering (CCC), held in the charming wine region of Tokaj (Hungary) from 31 August to 1 September 2017. Sólyom Sándor from Hungary and David Citek from Czech Republic presented the activities of the fib YMG to the audience and encouraged young professionals to join this exciting initiative. Prof György L. Balázs, Chairman of CCC2017 Congress, was also happy to count with a young active group within the fib that will take part of future events and promote interesting activities.


PhD Symposium 2018



The 12th fib PhD Symposium will take place in Prague, Czech Republic from 29 to 31 August 2018.

The event provides an excellent opportunity for PhD students to share scientific thoughts and findings with the international research community from all over the world in the following fields: advanced materials, innovative structures and details, construction technology, structural analysis and design, strengthening and repair, monitoring and structural assessment, durability and life assessment and sustainability and life cycle management.

The post-conference proceedings will be sent to recognised databases like Scopus or WoS for indexing. You are welcome to submit your abstracts via an on-line abstract submission system that you can find on the official website. Abstracts can be submitted until 30 October 2017 and notification of acceptance will be given on 15 December 2017.


5th fib International Congress in Melbourne



The 5th fib International Congress will take place from 7 to 11 October 2018 in Melbourne, Australia. Its theme is Better – Smarter – Stronger. The multidisciplinary theme of the Congress provides an excellent forum for engineers, scientists, specifiers, concrete technologists, researchers, academic, practitioners and professionals to connect, to share knowledge, and learn about advances in the concrete world. The keynote speakers include Prof Frank Dehn (fib Presidium member and fib Commission 4 Chair), Prof Koichi Maekawa (fib member), Dr Andy Davids, Prof Campbell Middleton and Prof Michael Thomas.

The programme themes are:

Design and Construction Reinforcing and Prestressing Materials
Architectural and Environmental Design Bridge Structures
Model Codes, Standards and Specifications Composite and Hybrid Structures
Modelling and Design Existing Concrete Structures
Condition Assessment Fire
Concrete Deterioration Mechanisms Resilience and Robustness
Reinforcement Corrosion Seismic 
Models and Design for Durability Shear and Torsion
Monitoring and maintenance Shrinkage and Creep
Repair and Rehabilitation Ultra High Performance Concrete
Structural Strengthening Underground and Foundation Structures
Concrete Materials History of Concrete
Fibre Reinforced Concrete Large (Challenging) Projects
Alkali-activated Concretes and Geopolymer Concrete           Sustainability, Repurpose and Recycle
New Concrete Materials Through Life Management

The abstract submission deadline is 30 November 2017.

DISC 2017


This half day conference will provide practitioners with a valuable update on the latest developments in concrete technology and their application to structural engineering. Speakers from industry and academia will cover fibre-reinforced cementitious composites, special concrete mixes and modelling complex geometry.

The 5th fibUK DISC 2017 will take place on 29 November 2017 in London, UK. The speakers include fib member Prof Marco di Prisco (Politecnico di Milano), who will explore some convincing design applications, discussing the open questions, the limits and the potentials of Fibre-Reinforced Concrete.

Mr Ignacio Escobar (Tarmac) will examine the value of special concretes in buildings and provide an update on recent uses of special mixes.

Dr John Orr (University of Cambridge) will describe results of an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council funded research project that aimed to completely replace internal steel reinforcement with a knitted composite reinforcement cage made from carbon fibre tows.

Mr Charlie Scott (Waterman) will provide insight into the rationale behind the design and the lateral thinking used to efficiently design the John Lewis Storein Leeds.
