Presentations Invited for ASTM International Workshop on Cementitious Mixtures

Press release date: January 20, 2014

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.—Presentations are invited for a workshop on Methods for Investigation of Unexpected Performance and Properties of Cementitious Mixtures, to be held Dec. 7, 2014, at the Sheraton New Orleans in New Orleans, La. Sponsored by ASTM Subcommittee C09.48 on Performance of Cementitious Materials and Admixture Combinations and Committee C09 on Concrete and Concrete Aggregates, the workshop will be held in conjunction with the December standards development meetings of the committee.

As concrete and related mixtures become more complex with multiple and/or unfamiliar cementitious materials and chemical admixtures, prediction of performance and properties becomes more challenging. The objectives of this workshop are:
To present case history examples of unexpected performance and properties that have been observed in such mixtures and methods that were useful in evaluating and understanding them;
To consider and generate dialogue on the extent to which various standard methods and standard practices such as those based on paste or mortar mixtures can be useful in understanding such behavior and leading to resolution of problematic trends; and
To present new approaches and methods or modifications to existing tests or practices that have been productively used toward these ends.

Potential presenters are invited to submit a title and abstract of 500 words or less on specific experiences and/or research or method development that supports these objectives to by Aug. 31, 2014. Notification of acceptance of presentations and the tentative workshop schedule will be made by Sept. 30, 2014.
