WEB200604Webinar: Moisture Mitigation in Building Assemblies6/4/20206/4/2020The presentation describes moisture mitigation in building wall assemblies with an emphasis on precast concrete walls in northern U.S. climates. It describes indoor and outdoor sources of moisture and the basic fundamentals of water vapor condensation. The difference between air barriers and vapor retarders is described. Methods of keeping precast concrete walls dry are presented.WEB200604
WEB200618Webinar: Prefabricated Concrete Façade System Connections6/18/20206/18/2020In a recent study by FMI, architects and owners ranked exterior walls as the most complex component of a building to work with; citing water intrusion, trade coordination, code compliance and cost as their primary concerns.  Prefabricated concrete building façade systems can help ease the burden of building envelope design.  Understanding how to connect these primary barrier systems to a building’s structure can give insights into the benefits of this building systems approach.WEB200618
EDUMIXD720Course II – Precast Concrete Mix Design7/8/20207/10/2020This course is specific to needs of the Precast / Prestressed Concrete industry. Good control of concrete mix design is crucial to producing quality precast structures. It is important for precast industry professionals, production facility technical personnel, design consultants, and department of transportation materials departments to have an understanding of concrete mix design. This course is intended to train someone with a basic understanding of concrete so that they can create a concrete mix design or evaluate the suitability of a mix for specific applications. This three part series will explore the mathematics and chemistry behind creating an absolute volume mix design, and how the proper raw materials, sequencing, and production processes can yield high quality concrete consistently. Also, we will troubleshoot common mistakes in typical precast mix designs and how to avoid them, as well as adjust concrete mixes to compensate for negative external influences.EDUMIXD720
