Self-Consolidating Concrete: Best Practices, Use Cases, and Potential Future Uses (Webinar)
This webinar will cover the topic of self-consolidating concrete (SCC). General guidelines for proportioning, batching, and construction practices will be detailed. A portion of the webinar will be devoted to use cases such as precast concrete, heavily reinforced structural concrete, etc. Additionally, future uses of SCC will be detailed with a glimpse of some research results that will really stretch the limits of SCC, and concrete in general. 1 PDH is available. Certificates will be emailed to you after the session.
