Have you ever wondered about the realistic probability of long term concrete creep, or what types of aggregates are readily available from locally-sourced suppliers, or where to find guidance for formwork stripping? Compared to other construction materials, concrete analysis, detailing, construction, and performance require a vast array of structural engineering knowledge and construction know-how to create a structure that satisfies code, the construction documents, and the client’s needs.
“Concrete 101” will be addressing a variety of questions submitted by the local SEA-MW membership. Questions will be answered by a panel consisting of individuals representing the design and engineering discipline, concrete mix design and admixture suppliers, and the contracting side of concrete construction. In addition to the submitted questions, there will be limited time at the end of the program for open Q&A, so come prepared with questions.
Our panelists include: Ben Gunden, PE, Bill Lyons, Charles Mitchell (SK&A special inspector), Michael Lenkin (concrete subcontractor)
