Abstract:
The use of alternative cementitious materials (ACMs) in construction is a developing technology. Currently, specifications and design codes are based on the use of portland cement as the primary binding ingredient. The use of ACMs is rapidly advancing, requiring owners, contractors, and engineers to address specifying, testing, and performance of ACMs. This session will offer perspectives on the challenges of ACMs and how specifications, building codes, and construction practices are adapting to new ACM technology.
