SEI Half-Day Workshop

The North Jersey Chapter of the Structural Engineering Institute Presents a Half-Day Seminar featuring three great presentations!

Presentation 1: Designing Concrete with Recycled Aggregates

Speaker: Mr. Matthew Adams, PhD, FACI, Assistant Professor at the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology

Creating concrete mixtures using recycled aggregates is difficult given that very little guidance is provided on mix design and concrete properties. The presentation will provide state of the art information on how recycled aggregates impact concrete properties, and how to properly specify concrete with recycled aggregates.

Presentation 2: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Drawing Notes

Speaker: Mr. Matthew Kawczenski, PE, SE, F.SEI, Pennsylvania Regional Director, McLaren Engineering Group

All contract documents have notes to convey information; however, not all notes are created equal. This presentation will review general note requirements of the IBC and AISC, and will provide tips on general notes. It will focus on design note examples and review their impact on a project.

Presentation 3: Sustainable Infrastructure Guidelines

Speaker: Mr. Rajendra Navalurkar, PhD, PE, Vice-President, Parsons, Infrastructure-Bridges, New York City, NY

Sustainable infrastructure facilities, particularly highway bridges, require optimal use of all resources. The presentation will discuss the process of a durable and sustainable bridge design starting with formulation, determination of service life, materials considerations, and maintenance strategies. Sustainability rating systems will be discussed briefly.
