June 17, 2pm, Concrete Pavement Intersections, NRMCA: Pavement stress at intersections and approach lanes can be quite severe due to heavy vehicle stopping and turning. Additionally, the pavement within the center portion of an intersection may receive up to twice the amount of traffic as the approach pavement further increasing stress. Concrete pavements can withstand the loading and turning movements of heavy vehicles thus reducing the need to repeatedly rebuild the intersection. This webinar will cover the design and construction of concrete intersections and how decorative concrete may be used to develop streetscapes for urban center intersections. Register Here

June 24, 2pm, Controlled Low Strength Material in Transportation Projects, NRMCA: Controlled Low Strength Material (CLSM) is a self-consolidating cementitious material used primarily as a backfill and as an alternative to compacted fill. Other terms used to describe this material include: flowable fill, controlled density fill, and soil-cement slurry. In-service CLSM, especially lower-strength CLSM, exhibits characteristic properties of soils and can be used as structural fill (when strengths are higher), backfill and bedding, anticorrosion fills, electrically conductive materials, low-permeability fills, thermal or insulating fills, durable pavement base, and erosion control. This webinar will cover use of CLSM, mixture design, and placement. Register Here

June 30, 11am, Cement-Based Water Resources Applications, PCA: This free one-hour webinar introduces the uses of portland cement for the construction or rehabilitation of a wide variety of water resources applications such as gravity dams, spillways and overtopping protection, grade control and drop structures, reservoir liners, and upstream slope protection using cement-based products that include conventional concrete, roller-compacted concrete (RCC), pervious concrete, soil-cement, and grouting.

July 28, 11am Resilient Infrastructure, American Concrete Pipe Association: Buzzwords are often overused and underutilized, and Resilient Infrastructure frequently falls in that category. Yet in today’s constantly changing climate, engineers must consider the resiliency of their projects to withstand floods, fires, and earthquakes. Register Here
