RILEM-fib X International Symposium

on Fibre Reinforced Concrete


Valencia | Spain

September 21-23, 2020




The BEFIB2020 Organising Committee is following with special attention the evolution of the Worldwide Health Emergency and the Government measures for the Protection of Public Health.

Current situation suggests that the Emergency Lockdown in several European countries may finish by the end of this month, even if the recovery process will be progressive and slow. Considering that some other countries are now starting with the emergency state, we are regularly following the international situation in order to be updated about the global circumstances.

At this moment, we really hope that the emergency situation will be over well before September, and thus that it will be possible to host the BEFIB2020 celebration in Valencia (Spain) at the scheduled dates. Therefore, THE ACTUAL DATES ARE STILL CONFIRMED.

Notwithstanding, the BEFIB2020 Organising Committee will take a final decision on the Symposium dates by the END OF MAY in order to have a SAFE EVENT and to allow attendants from different locations a proper organization of their trips.

We are looking forward to welcoming you next September at the symposium venue.

The BEFIB2020 Organising Committee



On behalf of the organising committee and the host organisations, we are proud to present the next RILEM-fib X International Symposium on Fibre Reinforced Concrete BEFIB2020, that will take place from the 21th to 23th September 2020 in Valencia (Spain). BEFIB2020 is the tenth edition of the quadrennial international symposium recognized as the main reference on Fibre Reinforced Concrete scientific research and advances.

The main purpose of this scientific and social gathering is to promote scientific exchange in the research community working on FRC as well as between researchers and practitioners with background in concrete engineering. Furthermore, the proceedings of the BEFIB2020 will contain the most advanced research results and an updated state of the art research on FRC.

As reference, the scientific contributions are expected to cover the following the topics:
Rheology and Early-age properties
Technological aspects
Mechanical properties
Codes and Standards
Long-Term properties
Analytical and Numerical Models
Quality control
Case studies: Structural and Industrial applications
Special FRC’s / Smart FRC’s
Nano-technologies related with FRC
Textile Reinforced Concrete (TRC)
Structural design

We are looking forward to receiving your contributions as well as welcoming you at the symposium venue.
