We have a dynamic line up of speakers and topics for SDC Forum 45, chosen to highlight new and innovative tools or equipment, processes, materials, and applications that are/will be available to the concrete industry to assure its continued advancement and improvement. Among our selections are:

  • a new ACI 546 guide for prepackaged powdered construction products
  • results of concrete durability and service life requirements in global codes and standards
  • new research on an embodied carbon construction calculator (EC3 Tool)
  • panel discussions on performance-based concrete specifications and embodied carbon
  • how the inherent resiliency of concrete can be utilized through codes and standards

A 4-hour workshop on the “Implementation of New Technologies and Innovations” will kick off SDC Forum 45 on Wednesday morning, February 13, 2019. A panel of speakers will lead discussions on strategies that the concrete industry could adopt to implement new technologies faster. After lunch, attend an optional tour at the University of California at San Diego Seismic Laboratory.
