Integrated Pavement Solutions with Portland Cement
April 28, 10:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M
This free one-hour webinar discusses cement-bound materials options for ten specific pavement applications – conventional concrete, roller-compacted concrete, precast concrete, pervious concrete, lean concrete base, full-depth reclamation, cement-treated base, cement-stabilized subgrade and cement-modified soil, lightweight cellular concrete, and flowable fill – as methods for meeting specific design, construction, and sustainability objectives.
Cement Modification and Stabilization of Soils
May 5, 10:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M
This free one-hour webinar covers both the physical and chemical mechanisms involved in the cement-modified soil (CMS) and cement-stabilized subgrade (CSS) soil processes, describes the characteristics, uses, and benefits of CMS and CSS, and presents methods for geotechnical evaluation, field sampling, mixture design, construction considerations, and field inspection and testing that will produce a satisfactory project.
Sustainable Pavements with Full-Depth Reclamation
May 12, 10:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M
This free one-hour webinar discusses the applications, benefits, project selection, design, construction, testing and quality control, performance, and sustainable engineering technology aspects of full-depth reclamation (FDR) with cement as they relate to the recycling of failed flexible pavements as an economical answer for agencies at all levels in their quest to maintain and rehabilitate their aging and heavily used infrastructure.
Design of Cement-Stabilized Bases
May 19, 10:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M
This free one-hour webinar explores the basis for properly preparing both the mixture and thickness designs for cement-treated base (CTB) and full-depth reclamation (FDR) with cement pavement bases including the necessary ingredients, sampling requirements, materials testing, strength testing, and specifications, as well as a demonstration of the free, industry-produced PavementDesigner thickness design software.
Roller-Compacted Concrete for Pavements
May 26, 10:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M
This free one-hour webinar provides owner-agencies, contractors, material suppliers, and others with a thorough introduction to the fundamentals of roller-compacted concrete (RCC) for pavement applications including properties and materials, mixture proportioning, structural design, production, construction considerations, and troubleshooting guidelines that will result in obtaining an economical and high quality project.
Geotechnical Solutions with Lightweight Cellular Concrete
June 2, 10:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M
This free one-hour webinar introduces construction professionals and the design community to lightweight cellular concrete (LCC) to assist them in specifying this product for daily use, and discusses how this engineered mixture of portland cement, water, and air can act as a lightweight, strong, durable, and inexpensive soil or fill replacement for geotechnical applications while saving time, money, and natural resources.
Sustainability of Cement and Concrete
June 16, 10:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M
This free one-hour webinar discusses how growing environmental considerations are influencing the selection of construction materials, will touch on concrete’s role and significance for infrastructure applications, and what the cement and concrete industries are already doing to provide transparent, quantifiable information for decision makers, as well as lay out PCA’s road map to a reduced carbon future. Blended cements – including portland-limestone cement, or PLC – are sure to play a prominent role.
Cement-Based Water Resources Applications
June 30, 10:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M
This free one-hour webinar introduces the uses of portland cement for the construction or rehabilitation of a wide variety of water resources applications such as gravity dams, spillways and overtopping protection, grade control and drop structures, reservoir liners, and upstream slope protection using cement-based products that include conventional concrete, roller-compacted concrete (RCC), pervious concrete, soil-cement, and grouting.
Applications of Roller-Compacted Concrete for Dams
July 7, 10:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M
This free one-hour webinar covers the basics of using roller-compacted concrete (RCC) for dam projects including numerous benefits such as rapid construction, low cost, superior strength and durability, and fewer maintenance requirements than a comparable earthen embankment structure, as well as looking at several examples of recent successful RCC applications to dam projects throughout the United States.
Design and Testing of Roller-Compacted Concrete
July 14, 10:00 A.M. - 11:00 A.M
This free one-hour webinar discusses the process for proper materials selection and testing, durability, workability, and strength determination, and preparation of mixture designs for roller-compacted concrete (RCC) using various methods, as well as the specifications, construction practices, placement methods, field testing, and inspection necessary to ensure quality projects for both pavement and water resources applications.
