The 6th International Conference on Concrete Repair, Rehabilitation and Retrofitting (ICCRRR 2022) focussed on service life extension of existing infrastructure and durability design of new concrete structures. The fields of concrete repair, rehabilitation and retrofitting, as well as concrete durability and structural performance remain some of the most relevant for modern civil and structural engineering. To master the challenges arising from this it was important to remain updated on recent developments in material technology, construction methods, performance assessment and non-destructive testing, as well as design, specifications and guidelines, and service life prediction models for both new and repaired/rehabilitated structures.
The ICCRRR 2022 was organized jointly by the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Cape Town and Karlsruhe institute of Technology in Germany. The international cooperation has always been the basis for the global success of the ICCRRR and we were delighted to continue in this tradition.
The ICCRRR 2022 was intended to bring together researchers, practicing engineers, infrastructure managers, concrete technologists, students, and the supporting industry from around the world to share knowledge and experience on current developments in concrete technology, durability design and service life management, condition assessment of concrete structures, and concrete repair, rehabilitation and retrofitting.
The conference ran over 3 days and featured oral presentations by authors of all accepted papers and keynote addresses by leading international experts. The event included a tourist programme for conference delegates and accompanying persons, as well as various social functions including a Technical Harbour Cruise and a Conference Dinner on a Wine Farm.
The venue was the Breakwater Campus of the University of Cape Town situated in the heart of Cape Town’s most popular tourist attraction, the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront.
