TH09 - Concrete Mix Design Part II: Adjusting with Aggregates and Admixtures

Thursday, January 23 from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM | Room N114, North Hall, Las Vegas Convention Center « Back

Part II of the Concrete Mix Design series continues from Part I and will focus on how aggregate size and gradation, water reducers, superplasticizers, fly ash, microsilica and slag affect concrete properties. Attendees will learn how to properly apply aggregate moisture corrections and will gain insight into the quality control provisions of the ACI 318 Building Code. Valuable specification compliance checklists and adjustment worksheets will be discussed and analyzed. This session highlights valuable information for anyone who may use, produce, place, finish, specify or approve concrete mixtures or deal with complaints of cracking.

  1. Recognize what admixtures affect concrete properties such as aggregates, water reducers, superplasticizers, fly ash, microsilica and slag
  2. Evaluate how to properly apply aggregate moisture corrections
  3. Identify quality-control provision ACI 318 Building Code
  4. Summarize how to develop and analyze a trial mix

NOTE: Attendance at Mix Design I, WE08, recommended for maximum benefit from this seminar.
