FSEA Seminar PDH Event

TOPIC:  Fiber Reinforced Concrete Technology

Macro synthetic and steel fibers continue to gain wide-spread acceptance in applications ranging from composite metal decks, commercial and industrial slabs on ground, pavements, shotcreting and precast.  This workshop will review industry standard acceptance criteria from ACI 360 (Guide to Design of Slabs on Ground), ACI 302 (Guide to Floor and Slab Construction) and the Steel Deck Institute.

Cost effective, value engineering alternates of steel and macro synthetic fibers that deliver savings over conventional reinforcing design will also be previewed along with examples of extended joint spacing and reduced curling.

A proprietary Slab Design software which utilizes Yield Line Method analysis and accommodates concentrated loading and distributed loading alike will also be reviewed in several major categories:  Fork Truck loading, Rack Post loads, Dual and Dual Tandem Vehicle loading, Uniform Distributed Live loads and Line loads.

SPEAKER:  Randy Shelby  

As a principal / partner with FRC Resources, Randy has served as an advisor to designers, contractors and ready-mix producers for the past 28 years in the use and design of fiber reinforced concrete. 

He has served on the Technical Committee at the Florida Concrete and Products Association and is engaged with the efforts of several Concrete Promotion Committees.  Randy also presided as President ofthe Central Florida Chapter of the ACI and has been active with the Greater Orlando Chapter - CSI and the ABC.

Randy was involved with all phases of the production and sales of concrete and related items with Rinker Materials.  In addition to his Bachelor's degree from Southern Illinois University, he has also been certified by the ACI as a Concrete Flatwork Technician and serves as an instruction for ACI Certification classes.
