WEBINAR - Avoiding Damage, Distress, and Disappointment in Concrete Structures

This presentation reviews failures, damages, and other incidences of poor performance in concrete structures that have served to shape today's building codes and the standard of care for the profession. Examples range from well-documented, high-profile collapses to lesser known but similarly influential structural and serviceability problems.  Case histories will include discussion of excessive cracking, the cause of such distress, and mitigation measures. The case histories will illustrate how small details can often mean the difference between success and disappointment; and how codes have evolved to reduce the risk of future failures.

The presenter will be Michael W. Lee (Principal at Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates)

This webinar was developed cooperatively by concrete-related associations from Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.  The goal of the cooperative effort is to bring a greater awareness of  cast-in-place concrete to the design and construction communities via  quality continuing education programs.
