“The Role of Concrete and Non-Metallics in Advancing Indonesia's Infrastructure”


This three-part seminar will cover the following learning outcomes. The first part “Revolutionizing Green Concrete with non-metallic FRP reinforcement” (Francisco De Caso) will describe how non-metallics can enable the use of concrete in different ways to improve its sustainability and allow engineers to rethink green concrete.

The second part titled “The Performance of Spun Pile-Pile cap Connection Repair using FRP Bar” (Mulia Orientilize) will present the results of research regarding the application of FRP bars in repairing joints between pile cap and spun pile.

The third part titled “The ACI 440.11-22 CODE for Structural Concrete Reinforced with Glass Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) Bars” (Francisco De Caso) will introduce recently published guidelines and standards for ACI 440 and ASTM D30.10 including documents in development. The trends and use cases of FRP composite reinforcement materials in new constructions, as well as the advantages and limitations will be presented.

Francisco De Caso, Ph.D.

ACI Member Francisco De Caso received his MEng from the University of Bath, in UK, and his PhD from the University of Miami, Florida USA, where he is a Principal Scientist at the College of Engineering. His applied research work is focused on resilient material and structural systems for the built infrastructure; as well as the decarbonization of the concrete and cement industry to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. He is actively involved in technology transfer as Associate Director of the Center for Integration of Composites into Infrastructure (CICI), an national Science Foundation Industry/University cooperative research center, and Manager of the Structures and Materials Laboratory, an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory, and ISO 17020 inspection body, specialized in evaluating and certifying non-metallic composite materials for building code and infrastructure compliance. Dr. De Caso is a member of ACI Committees 130, 135, 364 and 440.
As an active member of numerous professional organizations, Dr. De Caso is dedicated to the development and review of test methods, standards, guidelines and codes in the areas of materials and structures. He is chair of ASTM D30.10 committee on Composites for Civil Structures, involved with International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE); and most recently was appointed member in the Committee on Codes and Standards Advocacy and Outreach (CSAO) of the American Concrete Institute (ACI).

Mulia Orientilize, S.T., M.Eng.

ACI Member Mulia Orientilize received his MEng from the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, and his Doctoral Degree from the University of Indonesia. She is a permanent teaching staff at the Department of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, University of Indonesia. Her research interest are structural repair issues, especially regarding pile foundation repair, as well as the application of Performance Based Design in foundation design.
