Welcome to IJBRC


Welcome to the International Joints and Bearings Research Council affiliated with the American Concrete Institute.

Joints, bearings and seismic devices are important components to assure the functionality and safety, as well as the serviceability and longevity of concrete structures. The design, specification, fabrication, installation, inspection, and maintenance of joints, bearings and seismic devices require interdisciplinary and specialized skills and knowledge.

Through World Congresses and a graduate scholarship, IJBRC supports research in new development and improvement in expansion joints, bearings and seismic devices for concrete structures.
