Title Source Short Description

Die Themenfelder der Weiterbildungsveranstaltung 2021 sind in 3 Module unterteilt: Werkstoffe, Schadensprozesse und Zustandsanalyse im Hochbau kommunaler Infrastruktur. Die Module sind als Präsenzveranstaltungen in Karlsruhe im September geplant.

We would like to thank you for the interesting discussions and contacts and are pleased to publish the following information from ICLEI: „ICLEI Resilient Cities 2019 Congress concluded last week and we would like to express our warm gratitude for your support in making this event a success! During the course of three days over 555 participants from more than 60 countries both from the Golbal South and North took part in more than 40 sessions, workshops and panels. Highlights of the event are featured on the City Talk blog and ICLEI website. Pictures taken throughout the Congress can be accessed on ICLEI Flickr page and congress presentations will be available on the ICLEI website shortly.“

See you next year!













European Coating Show 2019

Meet us at Europe´s leading Conference on Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants and Construction Chemicals from 19 to 21 March 2019 in Nuremberg.

Interested in experiments and numerical analysis about porous mineral systems?
Listen to the lecture by Anne Lebhardt who shares her knowledge about her research:

Reactive transport in porous mineral systems – experiments and numerical analytics
Tuesday, 19 March 2019, 11:30-12:00
Presentation of a model approach for the mathematical description of the functionalization of cement-bound materials by means of organosilicon compounds (silanes) at pore level. Based on experimental and computer-chemical investigations. Objective: To elucidate the processes during hydrophobization and to predict the behaviour of different silanes and silane concentrations under changing boundary conditions.
