The ACI Foundation’s Concrete Innovation Council (CIC) will host its next Technology Forum on August 29 - August 31, 2023, in Portland, OR. This year’s highly anticipated forum offers fifteen presentations that highlight new technologies, advances in research and new test standards. NEU – An ACI Center of Excellence for Carbon Neutral Concrete is sponsoring the group lunch which will be followed by several carbon neutral topics. The event will conclude with a debate that discusses new technologies for determining concrete strength and how such methodologies can find a path to be used in acceptance criteria for concrete.
Forum topics include:
Alternatives to Cylinder Breaks for Acceptance Testing, Part II, will discuss currently available new technologies for strength testing. Panelists will debate if the industry could/should develop more rapid and reliable acceptance criteria based on those methods. Viewpoints of contractor, producer, specifier, and testing agency sectors will be represented with extended time for Q&A with attendees.
The ACI Foundation Technology Forum is an industry-exclusive educational and networking event for concrete professionals. The forum is your opportunity to connect with representatives from material suppliers, architecture & engineering firms, contractors, academics, top-level executives, and regulatory agencies.
