Taking A New Look At Cold Weather Concrete Paving
November 11, 2015

Thursday, November 12, 2015
Noon to 1:00 p.m. (CENTRAL) | 1 to 2:00 p.m. (EASTERN) | 10 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. (PACIFIC)

Guest Presenter
Mark Snyder, Ph.D., P.E., Consultant, American Concrete Pavement Association

Forecasters are predicting a brutal winter ahead, and whether you experience moderate-to-extreme drops in temperature or a little or a lot of winter precipitation, now is a good time to revisit some of the basic and advanced principles and techniques for cold weather concrete pavement placement and construction techniques.

This one-hour webinar will cover: the basic definition of cold weather (it’s warmer than you may think!); the effects of cold weather on concrete in the short- and long-term; and ways to retain the necessary heat of hydration. We’ll also explore special concrete mixtures, temperature recommendations, steps to follow when the cold weather arrives, and much more.

Learning Objective
Participants will have the opportunity to:
• Gain a more thorough understanding of the effects of cold weather on concrete, from the plant to the paver (including operations behind the paver).
• Learn or reinforce best practices in cold-weather paving, based on techniques and tips designed to minimize and prevent cold-weather related issues with concrete mixtures and placed concrete (from the front of the paver through curing, joint sawing, and sealing).

Professional Development Hours (1.0 PDH Available)
ACPA will provide a certificate for 1.0 professional development hour (PDH) to those wishing to complete an optional “evidence of learning exam” following the webinar.

Participants interested in earning PDH’s are responsible for determining the applicability of any training programs toward licensing requirements in their respective state/province. This program is oriented toward jurisdictions that allow self-reporting for licensure purposes. Participants are strongly advised to check the applicability of this training, along with other reporting requirements, in advance of taking this course.
