Cost Justification for Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure: Data Driven Economic Analysis for Project Decision Support - Part II - NEW

This webinar builds upon the first webinar in providing content for engineers around building the case, including life cycle cost analysis, cost benefit analysis, and triple bottom line analysis on projects. The content engages engineers to build capacity in order to be conversant in the language of finance and economics to support project design, prioritize competing alternatives, garner funding and persuade decision makers, and support stakeholder and community outreach.

Climate Resilience for Critical Infrastructure

Natural disasters in 2011 alone resulted in $366 billion (2011 US$) in direct damages and 29,782 fatalities worldwide. Storms and floods accounted for up to 70% of the 302 natural disasters worldwide, with earthquakes producing the greatest number of fatalities. Trends show an increase in these losses, attributable in part to a changing climate. Managing these risks rationally requires appropriate definitions of risks and resilience and associated metrics, and the using appropriate decision criteria. This webinar provides such definitions. It discusses climate resilience with a special focus on extreme precipitation for non-stationary processes.

MMC Masonry Contractor Technical Program - Testing and Selection of Mortars and Grouts for Masonry

The Michigan Masonry Coalition is presenting a series of Masonry Contractor Technical Programs.  These programs are for you and your staff, to gain a deeper understanding of ASTM Standards and TMS requirements.  The entire series is listed in this PDF.

Mix Design & Testing – Nick Popoff & Chad Richard from St Mary’s Cement

Often times, projects are delayed during construction due to test results suggesting non-compliance or additional “destructive” testing is implemented. The 2014 Cement and Concrete Reference Laboratory (CCRL) found that laboratories testing mortars and grouts did it improperly 89% of the time for Masonry and 56% of the time for Grout.

This 2 hour workshop is designed to walk the Mason Contractor, Testing Lab Personnel and/or Architects and Engineers through the minimum requirements of TMS 402/602 and each of the reference Material Specifications.

Cement specifications (ASTM C150, C91, C1329) as well as Hydrated Lime (ASTM C207) will be discussed for Portland Cement and Lime, Masonry Cements and Mortar Cements for use in manufacturing mortar for unit masonry.

The Standard Specification for Mortar for Unit Masonry, ASTM C270 and The Standard Specification for Grout for Masonry, ASTM C476 will be covered for the Property, Proportional and Strength requirements.

The final portion of the presentation will cover the proper use and evaluation of test results from ASTM C780, Standard Test Method for Preconstruction and Construction Evaluation of Mortars for Plain and Reinforced Unit Masonry and ASTM C1019, Standard Test Method for Sampling and Testing Grout.
