The subjects of this series of symposia are on composite materials behaving as brittle, normal and special conditions of exploitation. Brittle matrix composites are applied in various domains and the series of symposia are closely related to the application in civil engineering. In the last decades their importance is increasing together with their variety and with the use of most advanced methods of testing. Papers include concretes and fibre concretes and ceramics, particularly from the viewpoint of their composition, microstructure and fracture processes. Various new and advanced engineering problems are presented in the papers.
