"The Super Air Meter - MnDOT’s Experience" will be presented by Maria Masten, P.E. (Minnesota Department of
The Super Air Meter (SAM) is emerging as a new field test for measuring the total air content in the plastic concrete as well as calculating a SAM number which correlates to the spacing factor as determined by ASTM C457. AASHTO has approved provisional test method AASHTO TP118-17, Standard Method of Test for Characterization of the Air-Void System of Freshly Mixed Concrete by the Sequential Pressure Method.
The Speaker will discuss MnDOT’s investigation of the Super Air Meter over the previous 3 years of construction projects. In addition, the speaker will lay out MnDOT’s vision for implementation of the SAM as well as MnDOT’s movement towards Performance Engineered Concrete Mix Designs for concrete paving projects.
Registration opens at 9:30 am. The presentation will begin at 10:00 am. Q&A will begin at 11:00 am. The event will conclude no later than 11:30 am.
