A Minimum Flexural Reinforcement Puzzle
Analyses of the minimum flexural reinforcement requirements in ACI 318-14 show that updates are needed. Expressions should include the effects of concrete strength, and expressions for lower strength steels should be abandoned.


Fly Ash Concrete with Low Portland Cement Content
Concrete mixtures with high volumes of fly ash can exhibit retarded setting and strength development. Various admixture and cement-fly ash combinations were evaluated to determine the impacts of cement alkali and fly ash calcium oxide contents on setting time and 1-day compressive strength.


2016 Sidney Freedman Craftsmanship Awards


From Research to Reality
A panel of experts debated the use of performance-based specifications at the 123 Forum session at The ACI Concrete Convention and Exposition – Spring 2016 in Milwaukee, WI. The general consensus was that performance-based specifications have great potential as alternatives to prescriptive specifications, rather than complete replacements.


Products & Practice Spotlight: Solving the Slab Moisture Issue
When used as a concrete admixture, sodium silicate reacts with the calcium hydroxide and the free water in the mixture to form C-S-H gel. The gel serves as an internal curing medium, bleed channels and pores are drastically minimized, and vapor transmission is dramatically reduced.

Shallow Embedded Anchors
Although ACI 318-14 provides design requirements for anchors in concrete, it does not apply to specialty inserts used for anchoring nonstructural elements. Background information is provided on the ACI 318 design procedure, shallow anchors and related parameters are discussed, and modification factors are proposed for ACI 318 design values.


Nano-Modified Fly Ash Concrete
Nano-modified fly ash concrete was recently used for partial-depth repair of transverse joints located on a major urban arterial road in Winnipeg, Canada. The project was the first field trial of the material, and it successfully demonstrated mixing, placement, and testing procedures as well as indicated potential for long-term performance.


Crumb Rubber Concrete Bridge Deck
In 2006, a bridge deck was constructed in China using a mixture of portland cement concrete and rubber crumbs. Although about 5% of the deck surface developed shallow shrinkage cracks shortly after placement, the rest of the deck remains crack-free. It is postulated that the crumbs create elastic joints that reduce stress concentrations near the tips of microcracks.


French Dam Technology Passes the Test
The "French Dam" is a new technology for construction of small- to medium-sized hydroelectric and water control systems. Comprising modular segments manufactured offsite in a controlled environment, the system is designed for new or retrofit projects. The fabrication, installation, and testing processes are described.


A Safe Corrosion Solution for Potable Water Reservoirs
A new potable water reservoir was constructed in Tarragona, Spain. Based on past experiences, migrating corrosion inhibitors were selected to provide long-term protection against corrosion and help meet a 50-year design life. The admixtures had no apparent negative effects on the setting time or physical properties of the concrete.


Guide to Shotcrete
This article is a reprint of a paper that originally appeared in the Summer 2016 issue of Shotcrete. It discusses updates to “Guide to Shotcrete (ACI 506R-16),” including new and expanded sections.


Concrete Q&A: ACI 318M-14 versus ACI 318-14—Eq. 18.10.4.1 and Fig. R18.7.5.2
Equation (18.10.4.1) of ACI 318M-141 looks the same as Eq. (18.10.4.1) in ACI 318-14.2 Why do the values assigned to the coefficient αc vary by a factor of 12 between the two versions of the code?


ACPA 2016 Excellence in Concrete Pavements Awards
The American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA) has named the recipients of its 27th Annual Excellence in Concrete Pavements Awards, which recognize quality concrete pavements constructed in the United States and Canada.


ACI Concrete Sustainability Forum IX

Successful Design of Wet-Mix Shotcrete
Although wet-mix shotcrete has proven to be an ideal alternative to conventional concrete in numerous applications, its further success is sometimes hindered by a few common misconceptions. The article discusses some of those fallacies and presents corresponding facts. It also explains why successful shotcreting requires consideration of all desired performance criteria and project needs.


Precast Concrete Pavement Implementation
Precast concrete pavement (PCP) technology is gaining wider acceptance in the United States for the rapid repair and rehabilitation of heavily trafficked asphalt and concrete pavements. Rehabilitation work using PCP is typically performed overnight over a single lane. Two applications of PCP technology are described: installation of concrete bus pads at the East Main Street Station in New Britain, CT, and rehabilitation of the SH 97 and SH 72 intersection in Fowlerton, TX.


2016 ICRI Project Awards
The International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI) presented the 2016 ICRI Project Awards at the ICRI Fall Convention in Cleveland, OH, on November 10, 2016.


A Creative, Functional Upgrade
A team of consultants were contracted to correct a functional deficiency in a contact basin at the Sid Copeland Water Treatment Plant, Louisville, CO. The team found that although the roof structure was visibly weathered, the concrete structure was in good overall condition. To correct the functional problem, the team recommended a series of baffle walls to increase the flow distance through the basin and ensure sufficient chlorine contact time. The contractor used self-consolidating concrete to construct full-height baffle walls, solving the functional issue and providing additional support to the roof.


Computerized Project Management System
A computerized project management system (CPMS) was developed in 1980s during construction of the King Saud University campus, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The CPMS was built around the critical path method algorithm. The significance of the CPMS was to provide a realistic management tool for handling an enormous number of detailed activities over the nearly 10 years required to execute the project.


Products & Practice Spotlight: Repair of ASR-Damaged Piles
In 2000, severe cracking due to alkali-silica reaction was noted in piles supporting a bridge over the tidal estuary of the Barron River near Cairns, Queensland, Australia. After 14 years of searching for a system that could protect the piles and provide confinement to combat further damage, the PileMedic® system was selected. The adopted solution met these goals, could be rapidly and safely installed, and provided major savings compared to the original reinforced concrete encasement option.

ded overlays of equal thickness. Over 30 years of Swedish research indicates that a durable bond between the overlay and the existing concrete can be achieved with proper removal, surface preparation, placement, and curing.


Composite Strengthening of a Bridge
The four-span concrete Buhung Bridge, located in Gyeonggi, South Korea, was constructed in 1960 and has since been exposed to heavy traffic from a nearby military base. One span of the bridge was recently strengthened with post-tensioned, near-surface-mounted carbon fiber reinforced polymer rods. Dynamic load tests show that the stiffness of the span has been improved significantly.


Evolution of ACI 562 Code—Part 11
The eleventh in a series discussing the 2016 edition of the ACI 562 Code, this article focuses on Chapter 8 of the Code and durability of concrete repairs. Topics include causes of deterioration, cover and equivalent cover, corrosion of reinforcing steel, and concrete cracking.


Deployment of Composite Reinforcing
Although fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforcement has demonstrated great potential for improving the durability of concrete transportation infrastructure, adoption has been slowed by a lack of a unified strategy for deployment. Citing the successful introduction of prestressed concrete technology as a precedent, the authors call for development, publication, and sharing of standards and design guides for FRP applications.


Products & Practice Spotlight: Rehabbing Aging Infrastructure
Polyurea coatings and liners can provide strong, flexible, damage-resistant dampproofing in wastewater infrastructure rehabilitation projects. With the proper crack repair and surface preparation, coatings can be applied directly to the concrete over a wide temperature range. Rapid curing helps to minimize facility downtime.

Concrete Q&A: Evaluation and strengthening of members in existing structures
Q. I am the licensed design professional (LDP) for a team conducting a structural evaluation of a reinforced concrete building that was completed in the mid-1960s. We’ve determined that many elements in the floor structures do not comply with requirements in the ACI 318-14 Code.1 For example, shallow beams have stirrup spacing exceeding d/2, and deep beams do not satisfy ACI 318-14 requirements for horizontal and vertical reinforcement areas and spacing. To compound these issues, the floor live load is being increased due to a change in use. Are there any ACI Code provisions that address these issues?

Concrete Q&A: Field- versus Standard-Cured Cylinders made from High-Strength Concrete

I’m a technician with a testing laboratory. On one of my projects, I understand that the specified strength is 10,000 psi (68.9 MPa), based on compressive tests of field-cured cylinders. For quality assurance, we are also testing standard-cured cylinders. The field-cured cylinders are consistently breaking at strengths that are 25 to 35% lower than the standard-cured specimens. Why such a difference in strength?
