NRMCA Releases Two New TIP Topics
The NRMCA Technology in Practice (TIP) series has added topics, TIP 21 and TIP 22, while TIP 18 has been revised.
• TIP 21 – Concrete Mixtures for High Strength and Modulus of Elasticity - This TIP outlines the process of proportioning and producing concrete mixtures for high strength and high modulus of elasticity.
• TIP 22 – Reducing Embodied Carbon in Concrete Mixtures - This TIP discusses options for reducing the carbon footprint of concrete with equivalent performance while proportioning mixtures.
• TIP 18 – Managing Concrete Temperature for Specified Requirements - Revisions were made to update and correct some of the information in the previous version.
TIPs are developed by the NRMCA Research Engineering and Standards (RES) Committee. They're written in a “What? Why? How?” format and are developed to support the education of ready mixed concrete industry personnel. They can also be used as information for customers. TIPs are available in PDF format in sets of individual topics and in a collated set with all 22 topics.
