9:45-10:30

Economical Design of Insulating Concrete Forms
Presented by:
Lionel Lemay, PE, SE, LEED AP EVP, National Ready Mixed Concrete Association

Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) combine the strength and durability of reinforced concrete with the energy efficiency of rigid insulation, providing an ideal solution for multi-family, commercial and institutional applications. The presentation will discuss preliminary wall sizing and placement along with structural design considerations including design details and construction inspections.


10:30-11:15

Emerging Trends with Concrete Mix-Design
Presented by:
William Lyons, The Euclid Chemical Co.
While the design and construction community have been tasked to create structures to be taller, have increased durability, less cracking / extended joint spacing and have corrosion protection, admixtures in concrete are doing their part to achieve these goals. This presentation will be a general synopsis on how specialty admixtures including macro synthetic fibers have contributed value to the construction industry.


11:15-12:00

High-Strength Steel Reinforcement and the new ACI 318-19
Presented by:
Mike Mota, Ph.D, P.E., F.ASCE, F.ACI, F.SEI, CRSI
