Description

This is a three-part recorded webinar from January 14 - 16, 2020.

This three-part webinar series will review Troubleshooting Concrete

Troubleshooting Problems with Fresh Concrete

Concrete construction today involves the use of concrete mixtures than can range from just a simple blend of cementitious materials, aggregates and water to complex blends that include the use of, at least one if not multiple, chemical admixtures and fibers. Coupled with other factors that may or may not be controllable, variability in expected performance and issues can arise. This webinar, the first of a three-part series, will focus on common issues that can occur with fresh concrete.

Troubleshooting Defects in Concrete Slabs

Concrete construction today involves the use of concrete mixtures than can range from just a simple blend of cementitious materials, aggregates and water to complex blends that include the use of, at least one if not multiple, chemical admixtures and fibers. Coupled with other factors that may or may not be controllable, variability in expected performance and issues can arise. This webinar, the second of a three-part series, will focus on common defects that can occur in concrete slabs.

Learning Objectives:

Troubleshooting Problems with Fresh Concrete

1. Identify the common potential problems that can occur with fresh concrete;

2. Summarize the various factors that can contribute to each of the potential fresh concrete problems;

3. Describe the role of the concrete producer, contractor, the testing laboratory, and standard specifications in addressing problems with fresh concrete; and

4. Explain how problems can be avoided or minimized.

Troubleshooting Defects in Concrete Slabs

1. Recognize the common potential problems that can occur in concrete slabs;

2. List the factors contributing to the common defects that can occur in concrete slabs;

3. Illustrate how construction practices can influence defects in concrete slabs; and

4. Provide recommendations to address surface defects in concrete slabs.

Evaluating Test Results and Troubleshooting Low Compressive Strength

1. Evaluate compressive strength data;

2. State the main reasons for low compressive strength;

3. Explain how nondestructive testing can be used to troubleshoot low compressive strength; and

4. Describe how low compressive strength problems can be avoided or minimized.
