The International Symposium on Non-Destructive Testing in Civil Engineering NDT-CE 2015 is the next event in a series that was started in 1985 and continued at various locations around the world. 2015 the Symposium returns to Berlin and will be held at Technical University Berlin.
The symposium will convene experts from all over the world, present the state of the art of NDT-CE as well as new approaches and provide a forum for international exchange of knowledge and experience.
The primary aim of this meeting is to document new developments for testing, monitoring and characterizing of materials, building components and structures. Combination of methods, data fusion, validation and standardization have gained high attention recently and require a discussion about their relevance for practical application.
The symposium will continue the legend to be the event to intensify international cooperation in this important and growing field of civil engineering research. It will provide interfaces to relates disciplines as mathematics, physics, geophysics and classical NDT. It is directed to all institutions and experts engaged in non-destructive evaluation in research, administration and industry. The three day symposium will provide opportunity for discussion of technological trends, testing equipment and applications. It will also provide the latest information on research policies in different countries and help establish joint research projects.
Contributions to this symposium should focus on testing methods used in construction and for the condition assessment of buildings and other structures. Within this scope, the symposium will deal with both the development of new NDT-CE methods and practical experience or applications in general. The objects of investigations should be building components, buildings, structures and in-situ, non-destructive or quasi non-destructive material analysis and evaluation.
Special attention will be given to contributions of young researchers. Please visit the website for details how to enter the competition for the Young Researcher Award.
In addition to publication as extended abstracts (4 pages) in the conference proceedings, contributions will be considered by the scientific advisory committee for publication as full papers in special issues of peer reviewed journals.
The Call for Papers can be downloaded at the bottom of this page!
Abstracts to any topic in Nondestructive Testing in Civil Engineering are welcome.
