The year 2020 has been a challenging one, not just for CoMSIRU, but for the world as a whole. Despite the challenges of managing work and life in the current pandemic, the research unit managed to get together at Cape Town's scenic Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden to have a picnic – all COVID-19 protocols observed. After months of virtual meetings, online classes and seminars, it was great to be able to meet again "in real life" with CoMSIRU people and share s few laughs.
As the year comes to a close, we wish you all a very happy festive season and a prosperous 2021. Stay healthy, stay safe.
The Concrete Materials and Structural Integrity Research Unit (CoMSIRU) is an active research unit in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Cape Town.
