Event: ACI Houston Chapter / General Meeting
Topic: Hot Weather Concreting
As temperatures rise to 95 degrees in Houston, those 1PM concrete placements will become 1AM placement. Our local ACI Houston Chapter has assembled a technical panel representing a concrete supplier (Daniel McPheeters, Southern Star Concrete), concrete contractor (Randy Smaltz, Baker Concrete), and testing laboratory (Jigar Desai, Terracon Consultants). Come join us for lunch and a discussion on the facts, misconceptions, and challenges associated with Hot Weather Concreting. Topics to be covered include: 60-80F initial curing, the “95F rule”, addition of ice, set control, mix design, and ACI 305 ‘Hot Weather Concreting’.
NOTE: The ACI Houston Chapter Board of Directors has voted to make the General Membership meetings free to Chapter Members only beginning in March, 2013 . Non-members are welcome to reserve a seat and attend but you will be asked to join the chapter at the door. (Affiliate Member: $25 Member: $15 Student Member: $10)
