Themed SDC forum sessions will showcase new and innovative equipment, materials, and applications with potential to advance the industry, among them: Science of Seawater-Mixed Cementitious Materials and Handheld Instant Air Meter – Fresh Total Air and Specific Surface in Situ. Other themed presentations and session topics include: “Shaped by Concrete” – PCA's Integrated Campaign; Recent Developments and Initiatives from ACI Committee 222 on Corrosion of Metals in Concrete; Resiliency and Embodied Carbon; Embracing Innovation: Report on ACI’s New Technology Task Group; and, The DOT Mindset and Embracing Innovation. Leading into the forum, SDC is hosting a free workshop, “Productivity in Concrete Construction,” February 11.
