Congress & Exhibition Address

KGM Halil Rıfat Paşa Convention Hall


1. As suggested by the title “Concrete Roads: Pavement Solutions for Public Benefit”, which was selected as the event’s theme, the focal point of the Concrete Roads Congress and Exhibition will be both the financial and other sustainability aspects of different rigid pavement solutions. In this context, new technologies related to designing, construction and rehabilitation of various concrete pavements and their financial considerations will also be discussed.

While the primary topics of the congress will include the following titles, they will not be limited to the listed subjects.

1. Rigid Pavement Design
  • Conventional design methods (PCA and AASHTO design methods)
  • Mechanistic-empirical design methods
  • Innovative design methods
  • Surface reinforcement design
  • Design methods for motorways, national and provincial roads, rural and intra-city roads, parking areas and intermodal facilities

2. Designs for materials and mixtures used in the construction of concrete roads
  • Use of innovative concrete road materials
  • Use of fibers
  • Innovative sliding steel solutions
  • Curing materials
  • Maintenance and repair materials
  • Use of recycled materials

3. Concrete road construction techniques
  • Jointed reinforced concrete roads
  • Jointed reinforced concrete roads
  • Continuous reinforced concrete roads
  • Roller compacted concrete roads
  • Composite roads
  • Tunnel concrete road construction techniques

4. Maintenance/repair processes applied in concrete roads
  • Partial depth repair
  • Bonded/unbonded surface reinforcement
  • Repair of sliding steel
  • Protective maintenance
  • Pavement treatment by diamond grinding and grooving techniques

5. Financial analysis of concrete roads
  • Life cycle assessment
  • Financial assessment of life cycle
  • Comparison of different pavement construction techniques

6. Quality control processes for concrete roads
  • Quality control systems
  • Surface unevenness control
  • Sliding resistance and noise measurements

7. Rural road solutions and roller compacted concrete roads
  • RCC road applications

8. Concrete barriers
  • Safety barriers
  • Noise barriers
  • Integrated solutions

9. Permeable concrete applications
