Course Description: 

 The A&E designers’ hidden secret to specifying concrete. Based on ACI standards, this presentation addresses the need to implement methods in conventional concrete and advancing technology creating a mix design to produce architectural concrete slabs that will provide the best canvas possible for polished concrete with a joint-free slab.

Take the guesswork out of such a design and understand how this can also help in tank farms, bridge decks and wherever concrete shrinkage is an issue. 

This presentation uses the reference outlined below, the EC9 as a basis for presentation. Allowing a quick look at how such a design is possible.

Nine Elements for Expansive Components for Shrinkage Compensating Concrete

Nine Fundamentals for Expansive Components Use In Shrinkage Compensating Concrete: All Concrete cracks, it’s just going to happen! Not if designed well. This outline clearly shows how industry standards navigate a better way to design an architectural concrete slab with a component that prevents curling and dry shrinkage, the source of most concrete cracking.

  • Dry-shrinkage is controllable
  • Choice of Components
  • Producer Partnership
  • Mix-Design
  • Restraint
  • Formwork
  • Placing
  • Finishing
  • Curing
