The Portland Cement Association's (PCA) North Central Cement Council and the Minnesota Concrete Council recently co-sponsored the Minnesota Concrete Forum at Hennepin Technical College, Brooklyn Park, MN. Twenty-five engineers and specifiers attended the event, reports NRMCA Senior Director, National Resources, Phil Kresge. The event was hosted by Doug Burns, executive director of PCA North Central Region and by April Stier, PCA North Central’s pavement engineer.

Kresge began the morning session with his presentation, Roller-Compacted Concrete: Another Choice for Pavement. Following Kresge’s presentation, Jacob Gave from NRMCA Producer member Cemstone, and Justin Pomerleau from ACI Asphalt Contractors gave an overview of recently completed RCC projects. Following lunch, the forum’s focus changed to Full-Depth Reclamation (FDR) as a rehabilitation method. David Rettner, P.E., senior principle engineer at American Engineering Testing, provided information about FDR, including application determination, testing and placement. Tim Johnson from Mid-State Reclamation shared his experiences with FDR, having utilized the procedure in the construction of hundreds of miles of pavement.
