Self consolidating concrete properties

07 Apr

Presentations will encompass a variety of technical aspects, such as the residual behavior of concrete members, performance of concrete structures reinforced or strengthened with fiber-reinforced polymer composites, and damage detection and assessment techniques.The main audience for the session is contractors, but concrete producers, materials suppliers, designers, architects, and scientists will also have interest in this session.The principal objectives of the existing standard test methods for evaluating alkali-aggregate reactivity (AAR) in mortars and concrete is to identify the susceptibility of aggregates to undergoing alkali-silica reaction (ASR), to identify the effectiveness of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) in mitigating ASR, and quantify the suitable dosage level of SCMs in the concrete mixtures.This session reviews successful construction practices for a range of concrete pavements.The objective of the session is to educate government code officials, licensed design professionals, owners, and contractors on the applicability and use of ACI 562-13, “Code Requirements for Evaluation, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Concrete Buildings and Commentary,” and the new ACI/ICRI “Guide to the Code for Evaluation, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Concrete Buildings” through practical examples.

This session will explore whether ground limestone and mineral filler should be considered inert fillers or considered to contribute to hydration, strength, economy, and sustainability of concrete mixtures.

This session will show how the use of ground limestone and mineral filler affects concrete properties and how mixture proportions can be optimized to take advantage of these materials.

The use of alternative cementitious materials (ACMs) in construction is a developing technology.

Currently, specifications and design codes are based on the use of portland cement as the primary binding ingredient.
