On July 10, 2019, from 8:30 to 10:00 am, Professor Qinli Dai of Michigan Technological University gave an academic report titled "Fiber-Reinforced Normal and Self-Compacting Rubber Concrete" in the second conference room on the third floor of the Highway College. The report was hosted by Associate Professor Liu Yu, and more than 20 teachers and students attended the report.
Professor Qingli Dai's report is divided into two parts: The first part details the research methods and research needs of fiber-reinforced cement concrete, focusing on the mechanism of action of rubber particles and fibers in concrete; the second part describes self-compacting Research on the performance of cement concrete. In the interactive session, Professor Qingli Dai answered the questions of teachers and students in detail and explained the role of rubber particles and the characteristics of fibers in cement concrete, which inspired the teachers and students.
In this academic report, Professor Qingli Dai conveyed the academic frontier dynamics and innovative academic ideas of fiber-reinforced concrete and self-compacting cement concrete through in-depth and clear-cut speeches, which benefited the teachers and students who participated in the academic report.
