Minimizing and Controlling Concrete Cracking Due to Shrinkage

Cracked concrete can lead to safety issues, water leakage, durability problems, shortened service life, poor aesthetics, and costly repairs. Minimizing cracking is a challenge, but fortunately, there are options to minimize and control concrete cracking. Concrete cracks because it fails in tension; and a common cause is shrinkage. This presentation will describe typical influencing factors that lead to concrete shrinkage, plus options and construction practices that can mitigate shrinkage to control cracking. This presentation will provide information that architects, engineers, and specifiers can use to enhance project specifications to help ensure more sustainable, and durable concrete construction.


Reducing Joint Maintenance Costs by Extending Joint Spacing in Concrete Slabs-on-Ground

This course will address the need for joints in concrete, while reviewing and explaining the current joint spacing recommendations. It will highlight the different options for extending joint spacing by showing some example projects. This course will also discuss the theory for using extended joint spacing in concrete slabs today.


A Visual Imprint of Moving Air (Print Course)

Architectural acoustics may be a complicated and complex field today, but many of the basic principles began to take shape in the early part of the 20th century. This course covers the rise and fall of acoustical photography—its various benefits and drawbacks—and how it coincided with the development of acoustical principles in architecture.
