Continuing Education Credit: 0.125 CEU (1.25 PDH)
Approved AIA and ICC
Access Period: 30 days
ACI Committee 544 has developed new documents addressing fresh concrete properties, mechanical properties, back calculation of tensile properties, structural design with fiber-reinforced concrete (FRC), design of elevated slabs with FRC, and design of precast tunnel lining with FRC. This course includes presentations that address document contents, how the specific topics of documents interact with each other, as well ways to implement and incorporate the knowledge in these documents in the design and specification. The speakers are the members of the committee who were the primary authors of the documents.
