ASCP2021 6th Concrete Pavements (e)Conference – Program & Summary

Papers, presentations and recordings


2020 tested our flexural capacity and at times strained our mental tensile strength to 85% yield. To maintain tradition, ASCP has worked hard to develop a unique line-up of papers and delivery format for its 6th Concrete Pavements Conference which was delivered in August 2021. Like previous biennial conferences, this conference traversed a range of concrete pavement themes as well as featured keynotes from respected international guests and one home grown colleagues.
