|5/25/22||Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) – Design and Application||Travis Konda (Senior Technical Advisor, HNTB) and Mario Ratnaraj (Bridge Engineer, HNTB)||1 Hour||

Ultra High Performance Concrete (UPHC) describes a class of concrete material with a unique set of properties including: Strengths of 21,000 ksi plus, high ductility, low permeability and rapid strength gain. With these unique material properties, UHPC facilitates short development lengths, thin overlays and the potential for further development in optimized prestress girders for longer spans with less material. UHPC continues to play an important role in Accelerated Bridge Construction serving as the connecting material between precast elements allowing for small joints with short lap lengths while obtaining full connectivity between the elements. This presentation will introduce the audience to UHPC, the basic material properties, applications and lessons learned.

This presentation will discuss changes in the volume of air entrained concrete in pumped concrete. The work shows that during pumping the air volume will decrease and if measured immediately after pumping will be lower than what is found in the final concrete. These findings are supported by hardened air void analysis, freeze thaw tests, and measurement of the air void volume and spacing over time in the fresh concrete with the Super Air Meter. The presentation makes recommendations for modifications to the current testing specifications based on the findings.
|11/12/20||Ethics - Not Black and White but Shades of Gray||William Rushing, P.E., F.ACI (Vice President, Waldemar S. Nelson & Co., New Orleans, LA)||1 Hour||

Making a decision that requires ethical consideration is usually not easy. Rarely are we faced with an ethical question that has a corresponding answer that is clearly black and white. Doing the ethical thing can require effort and determining the correct path may include many variables that cause us to pause and consider what the right decision is. In this presentation, the speaker will discuss some scenarios that illustrate the grey area that can be "ethics." The presenter will work through the scenarios an offer insight on determining the correct and ethical way to proceed through a decision-making process.
