The Alabama Concrete Industries Association is unveiling Concrete University in November to provide designers, contractors and producers valuable information on how to specify and design with concrete products. Topics will include innovative concrete products, specifying or designing with concrete, and best practices for concrete installation. The association will host a minimum of two programs per month. The programs will be virtual as we continue to navigate COVID-19 and the challenges of in-person education. All programs will provide 1 HSW LU for architects or 1 PDH credit for engineers. There will be no cost to participate in the sessions.
DESIGNING WITH PERVIOUS CONCRETE
November 10, 2020 1pm
Pervious concrete has seen rapid growth across Alabama as cities move to limit impervious surface areas. Pervious concrete pavement is considered a best management practice by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and is a recommended solution to reducing runoff in the LEED Green Building Rating System. Pervious concrete pavement is ideal for parking areas, sidewalks, patios, roads and driveway. This one-hour webinar provides an introduction to designing a pervious concrete pavement infiltration system. The webinar will also showcase recent pervious projects across the state. Amanda Hult, P.E. will serve as the instructor.

Design of Concrete Parking Lots
November 17, 2020 1pm
Concrete pavements may be used in a variety of applications including streets and parking lots. By using suitable design techniques and appropriate details a designer can develop an economic and sustainable concrete pavement cross section that will perform for many years. This seminar will provide instruction on how to design and detail concrete pavements used in streets and parking lots by considering the traffic loads, soil conditions, concrete properties, and resulting pavement stresses. Amanda Hult, P.E. will serve as the instructor.
