Dr Carmen Ibáñez-UsachDr Carmen Ibáñez-Usach is an Associate Professor at Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain), and belongs to the Concrete Science and Technology Institute (ICITECH).

Her current research activities are focused on the experimental and numerical study of the behaviour of composite and reinforced concrete structures, both at ambient and high temperatures.

About the Lecturers: Dr Carmen Ibáñez-UsachDr Vicente Albero is an Assistant Professor at Universitat Jaume I de Castellón (Spain).  He also works as a researcher in the Concrete Science and Technology Institute (ICITECH) at Universitat Politècnica de València.

During the past few years, his research work has been focused on the numerical analysis of structures at elevated temperatures during the event of fire.  Vicente has been involved in European and Spanish research projects about composite concrete-steel beams and columns, and their behaviour in fire.
