ACPA and the CP Tech Center have added four new webinars to the 2021 “Technology Tuesday” lineup. The next webinar in our series, which is scheduled for Tuesday, May 11th, still has openings.
The list of current and new webinars includes:
Tuesday, May 11th—An Introduction to Recycled Concrete Aggregate (RCA). Tara Cavalline of the University of North Carolina-Charlotte (Engineering & Construction Management) and Matt Fonte of Castle Rock Construction explore this topic with useful information about RCA and its applications in paving.
(NEW) Tuesday, June 15th—Advancement in DOT Uses for Roller Compacted Concrete. Corey Zollinger, CEMEX Infrastructure Solutions, will discuss how RCC is being used in roadway and other applications.
(NEW) Tuesday, July 13th—Innovation with Concrete Overlays for DOT’s and Municipalities. Concrete overlays have been recognized by the FHWA’s Every Day Counts program, and this webinar will share insights about how they are used as innovative, inexpensive solutions to extend pavement life.
(NEW) Tuesday, August 10th—Resiliency Proper Planning Prevents Disaster and Aids in Crisis Management—A Concrete Perspective. Studies have shown that for every dollar you invest as part of disaster planning, you will save 5-6 dollars (on average) when you are in crisis management mode. From properly designing evacuation routes, to ensuring emergency vehicles have the ability to respond, resiliency using concrete helps road agencies be better prepared. Concrete Roads are a cost-effective resilient solution.
(NEW) Tuesday, September 14th—Advancements in Performance Engineered Mixtures (PEMs). This webinar will explain the current state of the technology to deliver quality concrete pavement consistently. This webinar will provide an overview of the technology, as well as innovative test methods that are integral to the successful implementation of PEM.
