Why You Should Attend
Concrete slabs on-grade are one of the most frequently used construction elements in commercial and industrial projects. Despite their popularity and extensive use, concrete slabs on-grade are responsible for most in-service deficiencies and construction problems. In this seminar you will review design principles, construction practices and troubleshooting examples for both reinforced and nonreinforced slabs on-grade. You'll learn through examples, in a practical manner, to help you design
high quality and constructible concrete slabs on-grade. You will also take home a very practical review of concrete materials as well as geotechnical, construction and quality control principles (including troubleshooting).
Attend and You'll Learn
• Design principles for reinforced and non-reinforced slabs on-grade
• Reinforced slabs on-grade
• Jointing and detailing
• Vapor barrier placement
• Slab drying mechanism
• Construction practices and quality control
In addition, after paying the course fee of $400.00 (you only pay $375.00 if paid before July 12), you will get an additional 2.5 days with Dr. Alex Wiedenhoeft, the Chief Wood ID expert in the country for the Federal Government at the Forest Products Laboratory. One of the interesting and fun "side jobs" for Dr. Wiedenhoeft is identifying wood used in crimes. He will be teaching a basic "How to" identify wood, and answer questions concerning tropical and
domestic wood characteristics.
This additional two-plus days, are at no additional charge. In total there are going to be 3.5 days of great instruction, from the best in the country at what they do.
