The New Orbital Highway (NOH) is a vital component of Qatar’s preparation for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Contract 3 (NOH3) is the largest of four contracts on this project. Using advanced deterioration modeling tools and thermal analysis models, minimum requirements for concrete materials and mixture designs were specified to accommodate the very aggressive local environment and ground conditions. This article summarizes the actions taken to ensure a 120-year design life for major concrete structures of Qatar’s NOH3 project.

Q: We are planning to use threaded reinforcing bars as anchor rods for connection of base plates (of steel or precast columns) to cast-in-place foundation elements. We intend to specify that the bars are supplied with threaded heads. In ACI 318-14,1 it seems that the design of headed reinforcing bars could be governed either by Chapter 25—Reinforcement Details or Chapter 17—Anchoring to Concrete. However, the headed reinforcing bars shown in the commentary of Chapter 25 appear to be used in joints of concrete elements (for example, a beam framing into a wall or column) and subjected primarily to tension forces. In our application, the bars will anchor steel or precast elements to concrete and are subjected to tension forces, shear forces, or both. Can we use the provisions in Chapter 25 to design the anchor rods?
It is our pleasure to congratulate individuals in 2019 who will have supported ACI for 25 and 45 years.

The HoloLens 2 is a wearable cloud-enabled computer that produces holograms—three-dimensional virtual objects. The latest generation of HoloLens allows users to see multiple holograms at once, all laid over reality, through its wide field of view. These holograms can be rotated and manipulated, while voice commands allow users to further control the device, even in loud industrial settings. Holograms can be shared among HoloLens devices or iPhones, Androids, and tablets, encouraging collaboration.
