The Taiwan Concrete Institute (TCI) held the 2nd student fiber-reinforced bowling ball competition, co-sponsored by ACI Taiwan Chapter and National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST), on November 29, 2019 in Taipei, Taiwan.
The objective of the competition is to provide a platform for the students to exchange their knowledge and experiences in producing the fiber-reinforced concrete and to demonstrate the art of concrete to the public. The TCI invited the Japan concrete institute (JCI) to join the annual TCI convention and the opening of the competition.
A total of 29 teams from 10 universities and 5 high schools joined the competition. The winning team from the National Chiayi University, and 2018 winning team from the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, will be funded by TCI and the ACI Competition Travel Stipend Program to join the ACI FRC Bowling Ball Competition on March 29, 2020, during the ACI Concrete Convention in Rosemont/Chicago, IL, USA. The deadline to register for this competition is February 13.
ACI will host a free competition webinar to prepare students for the upcoming international event on January 29, 2020 at 1PM EST.
