ICI-ACECON

The fib supports ICI-ACECON, which will take place on 23-24 September 2022 in New Delhi, India.

ICI-ACECON is an event organised once in 5 years in India to deal with salient issues relating to concrete and concrete structures. The last event was organised by ICI-Kolkata Centre in Kolkata in the year 2015. ICI-ACECON is being organised by ICI New Delhi Centre on 23rd & 24th September 2022 in Delhi. The event scheduled for the year 2020 had to be deferred due to the pandemic.
Keeping in view the recent challenges faced world over, the subject of the conference has been chosen to deal with sustainability issues. The blending of cement with Fly-ash, Blast Furnace Slag, etc. provides several advantages to concrete properties apart from managing the waste products and conserving natural resources. Among the other structures, Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur has employed M80 concrete. For long-lasting properties, Ultra High-Performance Concrete (UHPC) becomes a must, especially in aggressive environments. In order to meet the demands of the rising population, it becomes prudent to go for tall structures such as Burj Khalifa, Dubai. India is also constructing up to 80 storeyed buildings. A large number of tall chimneys have been constructed in India and abroad to deal with pollution norms for thermal power plants. Millau Viaduct France, bridges of Jammu Udhampur Rail Link are some of the examples of tall bridges with pier heights varying from 40 m to 300 m. Similarly, large spans become unavoidable in many circumstances. Reasons may be many i.e. geotechnical aspects in the case of bridges, use of large column-free areas in case of buildings, etc. Akashi Kaikyo Bridge in Japan, Kanteerava Stadium in Bangalore, India are some examples. The organisers hope that the delegates would carry some memorable experiences of the event.
