2017 MIM Annual Meeting - West

Guest Speaker: Bob Thomas, President of the National Concrete Masonry Association

Bob will address both challenges and opportunities facing the concrete masonry industry.  He will cover new resources available from the association to support local promotion, developments in codes, standards and policies that could have impacts on the concrete products industry, and why the CMU Checkoff program may still be the best approach to improving competitive positioning.

Topics will include:

  • Next generation of Direct Design software
  • New developments in BIM-M
  • CPU Online
  • NCMA 100th Anniversary
  • ICON Expo
  • Efforts of coalition partners: Build with Strength, Block Strong, etc.
  • Efforts of competitors: re: Think Wood, etc.

Cost: $45 per person (lunch is included)

TMS Webinar on Nondestructuive Evaluation and Testing of Masonry

NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION AND TESTING OF MASONRY WEBINAR 

Nondestructive evaluation methods are valuable approaches for evaluating conditions of existing masonry construction without causing damage. Masonry strength can also be measured in place using in situ test methods, without resorting to destructive sample removal for laboratory testing. Methods discussed during this seminar include mortar hardness testing, pulse velocity measurements, surface penetrating radar, infrared thermography, flatjack testing, and in situ shear tests, with special emphasis on applying these methods for diagnosing both historic and modern masonry construction. We will also cover the process of planning an investigation following published codes and guidelines.

The seminar covers aspects of structural systems, structural materials, and preservation, and as such qualifies for AIA HSW credits.

Upon completing this program, the participant should know how to:

  1. Describe key design properties needed for retrofit or renovation of existing masonry structures.
  2. Define nondestructive and minimally invasive masonry evaluation techniques.
  3. Identify 2 methods for locating grout and reinforcement in modern masonry construction.
  4. Plan the number of tests needed for evaluating in situ masonry strength.

MIM Board of Trustees Meeting


TMS Webinar on Special Inspection of Structural Masonry

SPECIAL INSPECTION OF STRUCTURAL MASONRY WEBINAR 

Special inspection is increasingly being required on structural masonry construction projects, and it will likely become commonplace in the coming years. Minimum requirements for Special Inspection and Quality Assurance of masonry recently were updated and modified in TMS 402/602-16. This webinar will overview special inspection, review changes, and highlight key inspection tasks. Tips for preparing a quality assurance plan by the design team will be given, and key inspection items will be reviewed so that contractors and inspectors understand the importance of ensuring compliance of these items.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify key elements of the building code related to masonry construction and inspection
  2. Interpret the IBC and TMS 402.602 as they relate to special inspection of masonry construction
  3. Evaluate construction and field inspection techniques
  4. Recognize the critical elements of structural masonry inspection
