Concrete Mix – Not As Simple As It Appears

Come join the ASCE Society, Norfolk Branch, as we welcome Mr. William B. (Bill) Denison, Jr. CCPf. the construction materials testing department manager at Engineering Consulting Services (ECS), as he gives a presentation on the pre-production testing of trial concrete mix designs for the CBBT Precast Tunnel Segmental Liners. The nature of this project requires that the concrete be designed for a 300-year-service life cycle. One of the features of this very special concrete design includes having 2¼-inch steel fibers embedded in the mix for reinforcement. The concrete is also designed to handle various conditions or constraints for a bored tunnel liner system. The specialty concrete designed by Mr. Denison will be used on the new ‘bored’ tunnel being constructed for the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel Thimble Shoals Crossing in Virginia.
