Learning Objectives

1: Understand what is meant by the terms ‘Curling’ and ‘Dry Shrinkage’

2: Define how expansive components impact concrete in a positive way to reduce curling and dry shrinkage cracking.

3: Explain how expansive components can be implemented in a variety of applications including slab-on-grade, slab-on-deck, tilt-up panels and tank farms.

4: Present how expansive components reduce environmental impact through the reduction or elimination of control joints and subsequent joint filler material.

Expansive Components in Concrete

FREE

The A&E designers’ hidden secret to specifying concrete. Based on ACI standards, this presentation addresses the need to implement methods in conventional concrete and advancing technology creating a mix design to produce architectural concrete slabs that will provide the best canvas possible for polished concrete with a joint-free slab. Take the guess work out of such a design and understand how this can also help in tank farms, bridge decks and wherever concrete shrinkage is an issue.
