TH133 - Evaluating Mix Design Submittals for High Performance Floors & Pavements

Thursday, January 24 from 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM « Back

NEW for WOC 2019! Having optimized concrete materials and mixes for regular project floors and pavements is always important, but doing so for high performance slabs, including those for high volume fibers or close tolerances, is essential to achieving the desired results.  Mix design submittals often have both insufficient useable information and much superfluous data.  This seminar will discuss the critical items needed.   Considerations will be given for evaluating the materials, such as the available aggregates, cement, supplementary cementitious materials, admixtures, concrete plant, etc.  Various mix analysis methods will be presented to analyze and evaluate the original submitted mix design and come up with reasonable proposed changes if appropriate.   

1. Determine what items have to be in a concrete mix design submittal to properly review, analyze and evaluate it
2. Describe both the pros and cons of a given admixture for a particular application
3. Evaluate the potential characteristics of available cements based on their mill tests and other data
4. Use several methods to analyze and evaluate the mix design aggregates and other materials to determine how the mix will perform in the plastic and hardened states
