Session Details

Review of concrete mix design submittals is a common part of the structural engineer’s services. These submittals can be complex since they typically include not just the mix design itself but also all of the background data related to the concrete mix including test results, product data, and certifications. To assist engineers in the review of these submittals, the SEAONC Construction Quality Assurance Committee developed and published a guideline document for review of concrete mix designs. This session was based on these guidelines, and focused on how the project specifications for concrete are used to guide the mix design process and to inform the mix design review. The ACI 318 requirements for proportioning concrete mixes were discussed, and a sample mix design was presented and reviewed.

Session Length: 1.0 Hour
