Self consolidating concrete form pressure
The anticipated presentations will show the influence of concrete proportioning and workability on the consolidation energy necessary.
Current developments in design guides are presented, including international coverage of research and application.
“Guide to a Simplified Design for Reinforced Concrete Buildings,” ACI 314R-16 presents simplified methods and design techniques that facilitate and speed the engineering of low-rise buildings within certain limitations.
Material is presented in an order that follows typical design process with procedures introduced as the designer will need them in the course of a building design.
However, these short-duration tests (the concrete prism test, mortar bar method test, accelerated mortar bar test, new concrete cylinder test, and new autoclave concrete prism test) have limitations in their ability to provide a direct measure of how a job’s concrete mixture might perform in the field over the long term.
These sessions will shed light on developments in the areas of new test methods that are focused on assessing the alkali-silica reactivity potential of a job’s concrete mixture and new nondestructive test methods to evaluate the extent of damage in job concrete mixtures.
