Overview

In this seminar, the third in the CIA QLD Back to Basic series, our speakers will provide information on concrete mix designing, proper pumping practices and an update on MRTS70. We will explore the process of creating a concrete mix to meet specification for various applications, including trade-offs of performance vs prescriptive specification detail. We will learn the importance of quality pumping practices to ensure ultimate performance in hardened concrete and be provided with an understanding on the most common causes of pumping issues and trouble shooting.

We will also be introduced to the NEW standard AS2550.15-2019 – Concrete Placing Equipment.

Our final speaker from TMR, will cover the recent changes to MRTS70, a topic of interest for all industry stakeholders, from Engineers, designers and contractors to our service and material suppliers.
