ASTM International Workshop on ASR Testing, Specification Management and Mitigation From a Ready-Mix Perspective
Press release date: March 22, 2012
W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.-A workshop on ASR Testing, Specification Management and Mitigation from a Ready-Mix Perspective will be held June 24 at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina in San Diego, Calif. Sponsored by ASTM International Committee C09 on Concrete and Concrete Aggregates, the workshop will be held in conjunction with the June standards development meetings of the committee.
The objective of the workshop is to provide a forum for the discussion from a ready-mix concrete producer's perspective of ASR specifications and limits. The presentations will showcase the challenges that a producer faces when confronted with real world situations. Several examples will be discussed in which standard uses of ASR test methods and specification limits are in conflict with production means and methods.
Online registration opens approximately eight weeks before the workshop and closes June 20. There is no fee to attend the workshop for ASTM members, presenters and students. The fee for non-ASTM members is $50 USD for online registration and $75 USD for onsite registration. Visit www.astm.org/C09Mitigation.htm for additional information.
