Early Bird Registration Ends Tomorrow for the MCC May 9 Breakfast Meeting

May 9 Breakfast Meeting - Early Bird Registration Ends Friday
Field Assessment of Internal Curing on Warping of Concrete Slabs

Internal curing is a technique to prolong cement hydration by providing internal water reservoirs in a concrete mixture. These reservoirs do not affect the initial water-to-cementitious materials (w/cm) ratio but do provide water for curing throughout the thickness of the element. Benefits of this approach include improved mechanical properties as well as reduced risk of moisture gradients, thus reducing the potential for warping. This presentation will discuss what was learned during the Field Assessment of Internal Curing research project at the CP Tech Center.

Dr. Peter Taylor, Director of the CP Tech Center, will be the presenter.

Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance for one professional development hour at the conclusion of the event. 

Location is Midland Hills Country Club in Roseville. Breakfast is served at 7:15 am. The presentation will begin at 8:00 am and conclude by 9:00 am. Cost to attend is $20 (early-bird members) and $30 (early-bird non-members)
