2nd French-Chinese Forum on Materials and Structures of Civil Engineering


The 2nd French-Chinese forum on materials and structures of civil engineering takes place in the frame of Research Consortium in Civil Engineering signed between CY Cergy Paris Université (Cergy-Pontoise, France) and Zhejiang University of Science and Technology (Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China) in March 2018. It comes after the 1st forum on durability and preservation of build heritage carried out on 8-9th  November 2018 at ZUST with participation of about 60 persons.

The aim of the 2nd forum is to update information on new developments within the concerned research teams (Laboratory of Mechanics and Materials of Civil Engineering from CY and School of Architecture and Civil Engineering from ZUST) and to continue the enriching exchanges between the Chinese and French experiences in the fields of materials and structures performances assessment, particularly when exposed to aggressive factors, in situ behavior monitoring and study of degradation mechanisms, reinforcement and repair and also new construction materials with low environmental footprint.

The 2nd forum will provide opportunity to initiate new collaborating projects between two staffs in order to reinforce French-Chinese synergy in the field of civil engineering research.
