At the MIT campus on August 31, Concrete Industry Day 2010 will provide a platform for Concrete Sustainability Hub (CSH) researchers to unveil initial findings related to two inaugural studies: The Edge of Concrete: A Life-Cycle Investigation of Concrete and Concrete Structures and From Liquid to Stone: The Genesis of Concrete. Lead investigators for both projects will be on hand to present data, answer questions, and receive industry feedback on CSH future endeavors.
A research center established at MIT by the Portland Cement Association and National Ready Mixed Concrete Association-affiliated RMC Research & Education Foundation, the Hub reflects both groupsÌ commitment to fostering concrete science and engineering breakthroughs that stand to advance industry practice. CSH plays an environmentally proactive role in aiming to quantify and enhance concrete’s sustainable properties, PCA and NRMCA emphasize.
Early registration is encouraged, as space is limited at the event’s campus location. A registration fee of $100 covers meals and meetings. Participants upon registration will receive a list of Cambridge hotels offering an MIT discounted rate. Registration inquiries may be directed to NRMCA’s Jessica Moore at 888/846-7622 ext. 1152; e-mail: [email protected].
