Fibre Reinforced Concrete for Structural Applications (8.ª edición)
The course follows an increasing complexity order. It will start with an Introduction to the concept of fibre reinforced concrete (FRC) and recent applications with the experience of specialists. The structural capacities of the structural fibres will be studied in depth as well as glass fibre reinforced concrete. Finally, the use of FRC in combination with other high-perfomance concrete types will be assessed.

The use of fibres in concrete has become an attractive solution to substitute the conventional bar reinforcement. The advance in research and the appearance of new materials and codes with structural requirements has allowed fibre reinforced concrete (FRC) to progress. That is to say, if certain requirements are met with steel or plastic fibres, their contributions can be considered in the structural design with the use of an improved composite material with outstanding ductility. The course entitled Fibre Reinforced Concrete (FRC) for Structural Applications follows an increasing complexity order. Such a sequence permits the student to obtain high-level knowledge at the end of the course and maintain initial motivation. Therefore, the first module will offer a concise introduction to the concepts of FRC and structural fibres. Such initial concepts will support the following and second module, in which real and recent applications of FRC will be reviewed with the experience of specialists and Sika expertise. The third module, which is the most technical one, will review the structural capacities of steel and polyolefin fibres. Such fibre types are those commonly named structural fibres. Following the sequence, the fourth module will provide updated knowledge about glass fibre reinforced concrete. In order to conclude the course, the fifth module will offer a complete overview of the use of FRC in combination with other high-perfomance concrete types such as self-compacting concrete and high-strength concrete.

In recent years he has published numerous high impact articles, as well as contributions to conferences. He also has a complete professional experience in the sector (work, design, project and management), participating in various research agreements, among which several of state call (IP of 1 currently) and the direction of the University-Business Chair Calle 30 – UPM.
|Alejandro Enfedaque (PhD)
PhD in Civil Engineering. For more than 12 years he has been Professor of “Construction Materials” and “Innovation and Durability of Construction Materials” at the School of Civil Engineering of the Polytechnic University of Madrid.
The areas of knowledge in which he develops his research are the study of mechanical behaviour, the simulation and generation of constitutive models and the evaluation and improvement of the durability of concrete. An important part of this work has been carried out on concretes with fibres for structural applications. Studies have also been carried out on the implementation and improvement of BIM methodology in Civil Engineering.
The projects and studies carried out have given rise to more than 50 publications indexed in the Journal of Citation Reports (JCR) and a multitude of research projects both with public funding obtained in competitive calls and knowledge transfer with private companies.
