Fundamentals of weathering - 24 & 25 october 2023

In the Fundamentals of Weathering workshop we take a closer look at the different aspects of natural aging and weathering of materials. How can we simulate these in a laboratory environment and which test methods and standards are used for this?

There is also time to highlight practical experiences and to get acquainted with colleagues in an informal way.

The Fundamentals of Weathering workshop runs over two days. Day 1 highlights the basic topics and on day 2 we go deeper into a number of topics. You can register for both days or 1 day.

Note:

Day 1 will take place in either Dutch or English.
Day 2 is with an ATLAS guest speaker and will be held entirely in English.
