The contents of this course include two recorded presentations from the ACI 2015 Fall Convention:

• Want Low Cost, Sustainable, Longer Lasting Concrete Bridge Decks and Repairs? Then Try Internal Curing by Jason Weiss, Professor, Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR

• Self-Annealing Concrete: Powered by the Retained Heat of Hydration by Romeo Ciuperca, President, Greencraft LLC, Norcross, GA

INSTRUCTIONS: Read and study the materials included in this module. Then, complete and pass the corresponding 10-question quiz with a score of 80% or higher to receive a certificate for 0.1 CEU (equivalent to 1.0 PDH). This online course is not approved for credit with the Florida Construction Industry Licensing Board (CILB).

Continuing Education Credit: 0.1 CEU (1 PDH)

Access Period: 30 days


This course highlights some of the current emerging industry technologies identified by the Strategic Development Council (SDC). The presentations included in this course give an overview of newer curing technologies currently or soon to be impacting the concrete industry. One presentation discusses positive effects of internal curing on early age and long-term durability of concrete. The other presentation introduces self-annealing concrete that thermally controls portland cement with fly ash concrete in the plastic and hardened stages using insulated formwork.

Table of Contents

Learning objectives:

1. Explain the differences in performance of reinforced concrete bridge decks using concrete with internal curing properties compared to concrete with little or no internal curing properties

2. Develop a plan to change a normal concrete bridge deck mixture into a mixture that has vastly improved internal curing capabilities

3. Summarize the positive attributes that self-annealing concrete can potentially provide over normal portland cement concrete placed in conventionally.

4. Explain the expected heat of hydration trends in self-annealing concrete over 24 hours, 7 days, and 90 days.
