Emerging Professional Webinar: Lightweight Cellular Concrete for Geotechnical Applications

Presented by Tyler Bodnar, CNCA and Greg Halsted, Portland Cement Association

Please join us on December 12th at 11am where we will host a complimentary webinar courtesy of California Cement Association.

Lightweight cellular concrete (LCC) is a mixture of portland cement, water, and air that can act as a lightweight, strong, durable, and inexpensive soil or fill replacement for geotechnical applications.  LCC saves time, money, and natural resources by replacing aggregates with air bubbles in numerous project applications.  This presentation will introduce construction professionals and the design community to LCC and assist them in specifying this product for daily use.

About the Speakers:

Tyler Bodnar represents the California Nevada Cement Association (CNCA) as the Director of Geotechnical Markets for California and Nevada.  After spending over eleven years as a municipal engineer, Tyler now provides technical support and educational opportunities for cement-based solutions including lightweight cellular concrete.  Tyler is actively involved in academic research, DOT specification committees, and several associations including ASCE, CalGeo, and APWA.
CNCA serves as a non-profit trade association that provides industry expertise designed to responsibly transform our built environment.  Tyler’s experience and knowledge of all facets of capital improvement projects make him a trusted resource for public agencies and private development organizations.  He graduated from California State University, Chico with a degree in Civil Engineering and is a licensed Civil Engineer in the state of California.

Greg Halsted is the Manager of Pavement and Geotechnical Markets for the Portland Cement Association (PCA).  He is responsible for expanding market share for use of portland cement in all paving and engineered cement applications including conventional concrete, roller‐compacted concrete, pervious concrete, cement-modified and cement-stabilized soils, cement‐treated base, full‐depth reclamation, slurry trenches, flowable fill, deep soil mixing, lightweight cellular concrete and waste solidification/stabilization.
Greg has over 20 years of experience in the use of cement in the pavements, geotechnical, and concrete industry.  He has knowledge of planning, design, materials testing, and construction; has participated in numerous training and construction workshops involving State and Provincial transportation agencies, Public Works departments, Universities, material suppliers, and consulting firms; and has authored several publications related to cement and concrete construction.  He currently serves as a committee member of Transportation Research Board (TRB) AFD50 – Design and Rehabilitation of Concrete Pavements, and AFS80 – Stabilization of Geomaterials and Recycled Materials.
Greg holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering Technology from Southern Polytechnic State University and is a licensed engineer in the state of Georgia.  Prior to joining PCA, he held civil and geotechnical engineering positions with the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute and the Georgia Department of Transportation.
