Come join us at 12:00 pm for lunch as Sureka Sumanasooriya guides us through Mass Concrete.  Doors open at 11:30, lets have a mass gathering and learn about Mass Concrete.  If you prefer your mass gathering on the web here is the online link for the meeting.

What is mass concrete? ACI 207.1R defines mass concrete as any volume of concrete with dimensions large enough to require that measures be taken to cope with the generation of heat from hydration of the cement and attendant volume change to minimize cracking. But how does one predict whether mass concrete problems will occur and what steps should be taken? This presentation will discuss how to identify mass concrete, ACI 301 requirements pertaining to it, and good construction practices. Topics covered in this presentation will include:

Examples of mass concrete structures

Identifying mass concrete in the field

Specification requirements

Factors influencing mass concrete

Mitigation or design
