Your ACI Manitoba Chapter presents:

1/2 Day Seminar – Hot Weather Concreting

Online Registration is closed.  Space may be available by emailing info@acimanitoba.ca.

Presenter: Oscar Antommattei, MS, PE (NE, TX), FACI, plus a Local Panel of industry members

 Overview of Morning Seminar Presentation:

As part of concrete construction under hot weather conditions, contractors and concrete producers are faced with the challenge of protecting fresh concrete from high temperatures, loss of moisture, and weather conditions. Drying conditions resulting in high evaporation from the concrete surface can lead to plastic shrinkage cracking and other surface quality issues. Rapid workability loss can affect behavior of fresh concrete during production, delivery, and placement operations, which can result in poor quality of concrete to complete field operations.

This seminar presentation will cover best practices and recommendations from the ACI 305 committee documents in hot weather and examples from projects where pre-cooling measures, moisture controls, mixture adjustments, and admixture technologies have been implemented to reduce adverse effects to the concrete under hot weather conditions.   Examples will mainly be on case studies from large infrastructure projects in North America where different cost-effective ways were used to improve quality of concrete and constructability of field operations in hot weather.

 Overview of Panel Discussion:

A panel of local concrete industry representatives, with individuals that can provide their perspective as an owner, a consultant, a contractor, and a ready mix supplier, will answer questions from our moderator as well as from the audience. The panel will address local issues when it comes to hot weather concreting.
