Dallas hosts high-performance concrete symposium

The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) is sponsoring the 2007 Concrete Technology Forum: Focus on High-Performance Concrete, scheduled for May 22-24, 2007, at the Fairmont Dallas Hotel. The forum will bring researchers and practitioners together to discuss the latest advances, technical knowledge, continuing research, tools, and solutions for high-performance concrete.

Seventeen technical sessions are scheduled for the three-day symposium, featuring more than 50 presentations from nationally renowned researchers and practitioners. The technical sessions present state-of-the-art developments, new construction techniques, and product formulations that optimize performance of high-performance concrete. Researchers, engineers, architects, contractors, concrete producers, public works officials, material suppliers, and concrete industry professionals are invited to attend. Topics include the following:

  • self-consolidating concrete;
  • ultra fast track construction;
  • extended service life;
  • industrial concrete floors;
  • applications and case studies; and
  • performance specifications and testing.

The symposium will culminate with a high-performance concrete demonstration in the Dallas area. A product expo featuring 24 companies that offer products and services for high-performance concrete applications will be open during the conference.
