This seminar will discuss the 23 different types of concrete cracks that can occur. We will look at the causes, prevention strategies and help the audience to better identify the cause of a concrete crack based on observation. We all know concrete is going to crack so this presentation will give insights into managing cracking so it minimizes effects on the long term durability and serviceability of structures. Participants will receive a certificate for one hour of continuing education credit.
