INTERNATIONAL HIGHEST EARLY STRENGTH SELF-CONSOLIDATING CONCRETE COMPETITION
Institute for Infrastructure Engineering and Sustainable Management (IIESM) of Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) in collaboration with American Concrete Institute Kuala Lumpur Chapter ( ACI -Malaysia Chapter) and Concrete Society of Malaysia (CSM) are organized International Highest Early Strength Self-Consolidating Concrete Cube Competition (i-HESSCCC) 2018.
With great pleasure, we would like to invite universities and industry players to attend this competition that will be held on 19-20 April 2018 at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia in conjunction with International Construction Week (ICW) 2018 organised by Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) of Malaysia.
International Highest Early Strength Self-Consolidating Concrete Cube Competition (i-HESSCCC) is an bi-annual event and was first held since a decade ago aimed to encourage innovative ideas in addition to foster technical skills of the participants. This competition involves researchers, students and the industry in producing highest strength self-consolidating concrete in 24 hours after mixing with minimum cost. This year, we extend this competition to international level to encourage participants from other countries, especially Asian countries to participate.
