7th International Symposium on Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) Dams

RCC 2015

- Sep 25, 2015
Chengdu (China)

Chinese National Committee on Large Dams (CHINCOLD) and Spanish National Committee on Large Dams (SPANCOLD) have the honor to invite professionals to the 7th International Symposium on Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) Dams. The symposium will be held from 24th to 25th Sept. 2015 in Chengdu City, China.

RCC dams have the virtues of saving a great deal of concrete, building quickly, making project cost down and early bringing into playing project advantages and so on. Hence, the technique of constructing dams has been quickly spread and applied since it came out. CHINCOLD and SPANCOLD have devoted to promote the technology from early 1990抯. The first Symposium on RCC dams was jointly organized by the two committees in 1991 in Beijing China, which was a success start of the series of RCC Symposiums. It is great to find that there are more than 400 dams of this type in more than 40 countries today.

Following those successful and fruitful Symposiums held in Beijing (China) in 1991, Santander (Spain) in 1995, Chengdu (China) in 1999, Madrid (Spain) in 2003 and Guiyang(China) in 2007, Zaragoza (Spain) in 2012, the coming one jointly organized by CHINCOLD and SPANCOLD, will continue to contribute significantly to the knowledge and application of RCC technology with a wide range of contents and international scope. The Symposium will serve as a perfect venue for practitioners, engineers, researchers, scientists, managers and decision makers from all over the world to exchange ideas and technology about the latest developments dealing with RCC dams.

Beside international best practice, the participants will also have the occasion to visit some famous RCC dams in China in operation or under construction, such as Guangzhao RCC Gravity Dam (H=200.5m), Longtan RCC Gravity Dam (H=216.5m), Suofengying RCC Gravity Dam (H=122m) , Mamaya RCC Gravity Dam (H=109m) and etc. Also a technical exhibition for enterprises related to RCC technology will be held during the Symposium.
