Abstract:
The Canada Centre for Mineral and Energy Technology (CANMET) of Natural Resources Canada, Ottawa, has played a significant role in Canada for over 40 years in the broad area of concrete technology. In recent years, CANMET has become increasingly involved in research and development dealing with supplementary cementing materials, high-performance normal-weight and lightweight concretes, and alkali-aggregate reactions. In May 2004, CANMET, in association with the American Concrete Institute and several other organizations in the United States, sponsored the Seventh CANMET/ACI International Conference on Recent Advances in Concrete Technology in Las Vegas, U.S.A. Seventeen refereed papers from more than 10 countries were presented and distributed at the conference. The proceedings consisting of refereed papers were published as ACI SP-222.
