Noon – 1:00 p.m. Eastern
The precast industry has embraced Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC) technology. However, producers can still find themselves struggling with this finicky concrete mix. Struggle no more and come learn from an expert on SCC. Terry Harris will tackle common issues producers face while batching and placing SCC. He will identify causes and solutions for such problems as segregation of aggregates, low strength, low slump flow and bug holes. Attendees will learn how to adjust combined aggregate gradations, modify other mix proportions and manufacturing processes to overcome these challenges. This course is a must for anyone working with SCC or considering adopting its use.
At the conclusion of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Recognize causes of SCC surface defects and how mix proportions and casting procedures can be modified to mitigate these defects
- Describe how combined aggregate gradation can affect your mix performance
