Designing Competitive Pavements for Industrial Facilities in 2021; Asphalt Versus Concrete
NEW DATE & REGISTRATION COMING SOON | 1:00 – 2:00 PM EST | CPD 1

Ohio Concrete is presenting a designing competitive asphalt pavements for industrial facilities webinar, in conjunction with the State of Illinois Ready Mix Association, to highlight asphalt designed to carry an expected load for a greater number of years.  Specifically, we characterize an industrial pavement as one that carries at least one truck per day. The expected outcome from the webinar is to have an asphalt and concrete comparison that is more “apples-to-apples” not only from a load carrying capacity but also a costing standpoint.  This provides you and your clients a greater ability to make educated decisions on which pavement meets the needs of their facility. The speakers are based in the asphalt industry.  One is a peer, an engineer who has been designing asphalt pavements for some years and the second an individual who has been in the asphalt industry maintaining asphalt pavements.

Premature Joint Deterioration in Concrete Pavements
[60 min | 05/04/2020 | 3:30 – 4:30 PM | 1 CPD

Presented by: Jason Weiss, Professor and Head of the School of Civil and Construction Engineering The Miles Lowell and Margaret Watt Edwards Distinguished Chair in Engineering Director of the Kiewit Center for Infrastructure and Transportation Research

Concrete pavements and flatwork generally provide excellent performance in all climates and exposures. However, in recent years, the industry has seen an increase in premature deterioration at joints and saw cuts in concrete pavements and flatwork in areas where winter storm events demand the application of deicing chemicals, which are most commonly chloride-based. This talk will discuss some of the recent changes in salting practices and how they can exacerbate this issue.  Guidance will be provided as to how to improve the performance of the concrete in these challenging environments.
