A debate titled, Alternatives to Cylinder Breaks for Acceptance Testing, will be moderated by Rex A. Donahey. Participants will discuss if the industry could/should develop more rapid and reliable acceptance criteria based, for example, on multivariate analyses of fresh concrete properties and data from non-destructive tests and sensors. Viewpoints of contractor, producer, specifier, and testing agency sectors will be represented and there will be time for Q&A with attendees.
The ACI Foundation Technology Forum is an industry-exclusive educational and networking event for concrete professionals.
