Announcements

  • ​I am very much looking forward to this upcoming year for our CSI Chapter.  I am very fortunate to be able to serve on a board as talented and knowledgeable as we have.  Last year was a great year and we already have many exciting things we are working on for this year.  We will start our monthly BBQ meeting off with a presentation on the MPEV, so make plans to attend Monday the 23rd for some good eats and a great program.

    Thanks,

  • Two Day Concrete Symposium

    The National Center for Education and Research on Corrosion and Materials Performance (NCERCAMP), is hosting a two-day event on sustainable concrete Thursday-Friday October 11 & 12, at 264 Wolf Ledges Pkwy. University of Akron, Akron, OH. 44325

    Concrete Innovations

    Low additive high early-strength concrete is becoming more popular, but what is it?

    Concrete is a versatile building material that enjoys excellent thermal mass and varied design options but can require significant amounts of noncementitious materials carrying a high carbon footprint for maintenance. Low additive high early strength concrete relies on natural solutions and chemistry to produce more resilient concrete with less impact on our environment.

    Smart micro-encapsulated corrosion inhibitors help guard against concrete corrosion, specifically in areas where steel rebar makes contact with the concrete matrix. This system of limiting corrosion of concrete will be explained in a one hour lecture on October 12th by NCERCAMP’s own Dr. David M. Bastidas.

    On the 11th & 12th of October, live demonstrations of another natural concrete, reactive copolymerizing solids (RCS), will take place outside on campus.
