This Week's Featured Presentation

Seismic Behavior of Fully Precast UHPC Columns with Recycled Fibers
Presented by: Mohamed Moustafa and Allan Romero, University of Nevada, Reno

Presentation details

Innovative Applications of UHPC in Columns (ACI Fall 2023, Boston, MA) Through a collaboration between the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) and Con-Fab Precast Inc., several UHPC columns were fabricated using production scale techniques such as ready-mix trucks. Two different types of steel fibers were used: manufactured virgin steel fibers and recycled tires steel fibers and wires. The columns are connected to conventional concrete footings using different Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) seismic connections to be tested at one of UNR’s shake tables under combined axial and lateral earthquake loading. An overview of the construction experience and preliminary findings from the specimens assembly and testing at UNR are discussed in this presentation.

From Lab to Field: Using AI to Decarbonize Concrete at Scale
Presented by: Mathieu Bauchy, University of California, Los Angeles

Session details

123 Forum: AI Applications in Concrete: Present and Future (ACI Fall 2023, Boston, MA) Artifical intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionize the concrete business. Join us as professionals from the domains of research, industry, and technology examine current uses of AI in practical technologies and offer their predictions for the future. The speakers will outline the innovative ways AI is optimizing concrete mix design, speeding manufacturing processes, enhancing structural performance, and enabling efficient concrete industry asset management. Participants will learn more about predictive modeling, structural health monitoring, data-driven decision-making, and integrating AI technologies into current processes. Participate in a panel discussion that is interactive so that you may ask questions, provide suggestions, and add to the conversation on the use of AI in practical applications. Consider possible future developments such as automated quality control, intelligent infrastructure, and data-driven design optimization.
