NRMCA, Build With Strength Present Educational Seminars at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020
NRMCA and Build With Strength are presenting a full complement of educational seminars during next month's CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show in Las Vegas. Each week until the beginning of the show, E-NEWS will highlight a single seminar, which continued last week with Pathway to Resilience: Concrete Solutions to Sustainable Communities scheduled for Tuesday, March 10, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. in South Hall S 232.
This week's highlighted seminar is Concrete Mix Design: What to Look For scheduled for Tuesday, March 10, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. in South Hall S 232. Concrete mix design can be as simple as the time-honored 1:2:3 blend of cement, sand and stone or it can be as complicated as 1, 2, 3 or 4 cementitious materials and up to 5 aggregate bins. But there are a few fundamental principles that apply to all concrete mixes and understanding those principles can help you troubleshoot, modify or adjust a mix to produce the results that you need.
