National Workshop – Experimental Investigation of Anchor Group Effects on Concrete Breakout Strength Within SFRC
Tishk International University (TIU) and ACI Kurdistan Chapter recently organized a National Workshop on Experimental Investigation of Anchor Group Effects on Concrete Breakout Strength Within Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) at the Civil Engineering Department at TIU. The event was attended by professors, civil engineers, and students.
Dr. Raad Azzawi, an Associate Professor of Structural Engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), presented an in-depth analysis of the topic, focusing on the experimental investigation of anchor group effects on concrete breakout strength within SFRC. The workshop was conducted in two sessions, with the first session dedicated to the presentation of the topic, while the second session focused on commentary and feedback from the attendees.
The President of ACI Kurdistan Chapter graced the occasion and awarded the presenter with a certificate of appreciation for his valuable contribution to the workshop. The workshop concluded with a coffee break, providing an opportunity for the attendees to network and exchange ideas on the topic. The event was an excellent platform for civil engineering professionals and students to learn from experts and share their knowledge and experiences with their peers.
Overall, the workshop was a great success, facilitating a platform for professional and academic communities to come together, learn from each other and explore new avenues for research and development in the field of SFRC.
