Some time around the end of last year, I mentioned on here that we were going to have an eight-hour seminar on the use of polymer repair materials in bridge repair. Some folks at the time indicated that they would like to have access to the seminar without having to pay the cost of attending it. Well, do I have a deal for you, or what?:-) We paid the money to have a professional videotaping company come and tape the entire event. You can get yourself a copy of the entire set of videotapes for $50 American, which price includes shipping and handling. As this set of speakers included some of the best and brightest names in the field in the US, fifty bucks is a pretty good deal. The Montana DOT receives no revenue from the sale of the tapes. To order a copy, contact: John Murpy Mountain Star Video Productions PO Box 897 Helena, Montana 59624 (406) 442-3732 (voice) The seminar agenda follows: Jack Fontana Consultant -- Waverly, New York (30 yrs. in the business!) ------------ The chemistry of polymer materials; similarities and differences among them and methods of modifying molecules to produce specific behaviors in the finished products. Michael Sprinkel, PE Research Director, Virginia Transportation Research -------------------- Council, Charlottesville, Virginia Epoxy bridge deck overlays; in particular multiple-layer systems. Particular emphasis on the practical aspects of applying the materials in the field. John Trout President, Lily Corporation -- Aurora, Illinois ---------- Epoxy injection of concrete. Varied grouting applications in relation to bridges. The use of epoxies to anchor reinforcement bars and anchor bars and bolts. Frank Constantino Consultant -- Port Jefferson, New York (25 yrs. in the ----------------- biz.) Problems that flawed specifications can introduce into projects. Types of machinery available for applying polymeric materials. Michael Sprinkel, PE Polymer crack fillers and sealers. Practical concerns -------------------- in substrate preparation and field application. Relative merits of different polymers available for this use. Dave Meggers, PE Research Section, Kansas DOT, Topeka, Kansas ---------------- Problems that can and do develop in the field when using polymers on bridges. Techniques for preventing those problems from occurring. Ways of identifying the causes of problems when they do occur. The final tape contains a Question and Answer session involving all of the speakers that lasted about forty-five minutes. Nigel ...
