Colloidal Nano-Technology To Improve Concrete Durability

Colloidal Nano-Silica Concrete Treatments are the newest state-of-the-art technology for enhancing the durability of Portland Cement-based concrete materials. Colloidal Silica Technology from Spray Lock Concrete Protection does this in two ways; by filling the void and capillary structure with C-S-H and chemically stabilizing the concrete. Their unique approach is to use this technology in a spray applied process that deeply penetrates and reacts to form a permanent seal of the concrete matrix; completely controlling concrete moisture escape or intrusion into the concrete.

This presentation shall provide the participants with the following technical information and real-world results:

I. Brief introduction to Spray-Lock Concrete Protection (SCP)
II. Why Use SCP / Colloidal Silica Technology?
III. Description of SCP Technology with Technical Backing
IV. Real-World Examples of Concrete Treated with Colloidal Nano-Silica Treatments
V. Question & Answer

Fernbank Science Center Science Night Out

January 19th, 2018 6-7:30pm

We will need 4 volunteers for the opportunity to present in your engineering field (bridges/buildings/Civil/Geotech/etc), rotating engineering related activies for students (toothpick towers, puzzles or any activity you would like to propose) and prep for the toothpick bridge event.

We set up at 5, pizza at 5:30 and start at 6.

It's at the Fernbank Science center, 156 Heaton Park Dr, Atlanta, GA 30307, not the museum).

Please contact Larry Prescott or 404-558-9627.

American Institute of Steel Construction

Kick off the New Year with AISC's Two NEW Online Opportunities:

  • New Lunchtime Webinar on Welded Connections Coming January 24th
  • New Night School Course on Seismic Design Begins February 5th

Unmasking the Ductility Factor, Shear Rupture, and Element Capacity in Welded Connections
Presented by Patrick J. Fortney

Date: January 24, 2018
Time: 1:30 EST
Duration: 1.5 hours per webinar

Several considerations need to be made while in the process of designing welds and welded connections. This webinar will provide guidance on some of the more challenging considerations.  Specifically, when (1) should the ductility factor be applied to a weld; (2) is the load path from the weld to the connecting element(s) unclear in regard to shear rupture checks, and; (3) should a weld be sized to develop the strength of a connecting plate? This presentation provides background into the development of these design considerations, and discusses the application of these limit state checks.

Registration, pricing and PDH information can be found here.

Night School 16: Seismic Design in Steel - Concepts and Examples
Presented by Rafael Sabelli

Sessions will take place on Monday nights, 7 p.m. Eastern.

This course, based on the 2010 Seismic Provisions and Seismic Design Manual, 2nd Ed., is intended to provide engineers with guidance so that they are ready to apply the AISC seismic design requirements correctly and efficiently on typical projects in regions of moderate or high seismicity. The course includes conceptual treatment of the principles of seismic design so that engineers understand the intent and basis of the AISC requirements. It also includes a long design example that provides more specific guidance on the application to the design of a low-rise building. The example will be extrapolated from the Seismic Design Manual.

2/5/2018 Session 1: Seismic Design Concepts - Course Introduction
2/12/2018 Session 2: Seismic Design Concepts - Moment Frames
3/5/2018 Session 3: Seismic Design Concepts - Braced Frames
3/12/2018 Session 4: Seismic Design Concepts - Design
3/19/2018 Session 5: Application - Design Example Setup
