Idaho Hosts Concrete Paving Seminar

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Idaho Concrete & Aggregate Producers Association hosted a concrete pavement seminar in March aimed at engineers in the Boise area, reports NRMCA Pavement Engineer  Amanda Hult who provided engineers with basic information for conventional concrete and concrete overlay designs. Hult stressed that civil engineers responsible for the site design will often depend on a geotechnical engineer’s recommendations found in his or her reports for the pavement section. "For this reason, geotechnical engineers must understand ACI 330 and use that as the basis for their parking lot designs," Hult said.

Hult also provided attendees with information on NRMCA's Design Assistance Program (DAP) and challenged them each to submit a project for assistance. In addition to the DAP submittal, Hult urged engineers to always include a concrete section as a part of their design. "Providing multiple options for paving spurs competition, which is a win for the owner," noted Hult.
