Main Topic:

EUROCODES - Gate to Europe

The 19th International Symposium of Macedonian Association of Structural Engineers (MASE 2021) will be held from 15th to 18th of September 2021 in Ohrid, Republic of North Macedonia. Depending on the actual situation, it will be held as an on-site event, or in combination with E-platform, thus enabling the participants who will not be able to attend the Symposium to have an option to follow the presentations.

Considering that in September 2020, in parallel use with the previous regulation for design of structures, the Eurocodes were introduced, and appreciating the need for training of the engineering staff for the practical use of Eurocodes, the Presidency of MASE decided the 19th Symposium to be dedicated to this topic and the motto to be "EUROCODES-Gate to Europe".

It is of a special interest to make a comparison and to point out the differences arising from the application of these two regulations, actual and Eurocodes. Therefore, eminent experts from North Macedonia and the region will give invited lectures on this topic and will bring the Eurocodes closer to our professionals.

In addition to the main topic "EUROCODES-Gate to Europe", the other topics will be:

  • Theoretical and experimental analysis of structures
  • Contemporary methods for structural design
  • Contemporary methods for construction
  • Structural health monitoring, performance and damage assessment
  • Maintenance, repair and strengthening of structures
  • Reliability and durability of structures
  • Modern materials and technologies for sustainable development
  • Infrastructure objects
  • Other topics related to structural engineering

The main topic will be covered by invited speakers.

In cooperation with the Chamber of certified architects and certified engineers of Republic of North Macedonia and the Institute for Standardization of Republic of North Macedonia, round-tables on topics:

  • Implementation of Eurocodes as National standards - Exchange of Experiences in the Region
  • Interconnection and harmonization of regulations and standards for design and construction of structures

will be organized within the framework of the Symposium
