During the long history of CEB, FIP and now fib, the main objectives of their commissions, task groups and special activity groups were and are actual topics of research, application and dissemination.
Construction history is a rapidly growing research field in the community of architects and civil engineers. The last conference on construction history took place in Paris in July 2012 and consisted of 66 sessions. Only two of them focused on concrete and concrete construction. Furthermore, none of the key lectures was related to concrete.
The task group intends to set up a process which shall result in the publication of a series of bulletins covering the global history of structural concrete, from its first developments to the present situation.
At the beginning, it is very important to organise the extremely broad field of historic research. It is suggested to start with a narrower approach, mainly with the collection of historic material. A broader approach implies the integration of concrete history within the time, including political, social, climatic, economic and ecological circumstances. This will require more time as well as the addition of historically educated experts.
