Designing Durable Concrete Pavement Mixtures
The spring 2019 installment of the CP Tech Center’s concrete pavement continuing education series presented by Jerod Gross, PE, LEED AP, will focus on the fundamentals of proper concrete mix design to produce long-lasting, durable pavements. Case studies on Statewide Urban Design and Specification (SUDAS) C-SUD concrete mix and Iowa DOT quality management concrete (QMC) will help illustrate core fundamentals. The presentation will also cover the benefits of internal curing.
“In today’s environment, it’s important to understand the properties that deliver the most durable concrete mixtures,” shares Gross. “Spring is fast upon us, and we’re starting to see the effects of freeze-thaw related distress, such as potholes, which can be prevented through the use of durable concrete mixes and a proactive approach to pavement management.”
All events occur from 12 pm to 1 pm and registration is required two days in advance by 5 pm. Box lunches will be available to purchase on-site for $7 or you may bring your own.
