Due to Coronavirus/Covid-19, OACI will be utilizing Zoom for online webinars, seminars and meetings in lieu of holding in-person events for this event and depending on regulations and safety, likely for other upcoming events as well. 

With Valentines Day coming up we may be reminded of what Forrest Gump taught us all years ago, ‘life is like a box of chocolates.’  No where is this more true than with supplementary cementitious materials (SCM).  We will begin with an overview of SCMs that identifies characteristics of SCMS that cause them to react hydraulically, pozzolanically or as a filler.  We will discuss benefits and concerns as well as look toward the future as SCM sources change and their demand increases.
