Yesterday a session of Section 3 “Bridges and Cement Concrete Structures” of “DerzhdorNDI” SE Scientific and Technical Council was held in video conference format.
During the session were considered the following:
issues of arrangement and format of the International scientific-practical conference in memory of P. Koval, where topical and problematic issues of bridges and transport structures will be considered;
intermediate results regarding development of the national standard for testing methods of non-metallic composite reinforcement for road and bridge structures.
We are planning to continue a good tradition of periodic meeting of designers, scientists, builders and experts of bridge industry, thus keeping the bright memory of Petro Koval - one of the best bridge builders of today, who died suddenly on May 5 from a heart attack. After ending of all quarantine restrictions, we will try to meet in Lviv, where Petro Koval was buried, we will honor his memory and hold an International scientific-practical conference.
The new standard for testing methods of non-metallic composite reinforcement for road and bridge structures has to be one of the stages of wider introduction of new materials and technologies in the practice of road and bridge construction, although the main manufacturers of these reinforcement are domestic enterprises.
Our common goal is the maximum consideration by designers of the latest developments in regulatory documents and the selection of optimal technological solutions for the quality implementation of “Big Construction” National Program.
