Modulus of Elasticity in Concrete 101: A concrete supplier's perspective

Presentation summary:

In the last two years concrete MOE specifications has become nearly commonplace in structural building specifications in the Los Angeles Metro market.  It has been addressed in the Los Angeles tall building code and led to requirements in many projects.  This has caused confusion in the construction industry in regards to meeting the requirement and where it all came from.  Concrete suppliers have had to work hard to classify their materials and gain an understanding of how to produce concrete to meet these evermore common requirements.

In this presentation we will go into the basics of the modulus of elasticity in concrete and dive into what it is, what the value represents, how to test it, how to meet MOE requirements, and how MOE affects construction and concrete production.  This will be presented from the perspective of a ready-mixed concrete producer.

Presenter bio: Willy Regis, EIT

Willy has a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara and began working in the concrete industry immediately following graduation.  From the start of his time at CalPortland he was tasked with making sense of the new MOE requirements that were beginning to appear in the Los Angeles marketplace.  In accordance with this task, he developed an accurate and efficient testing procedure for the CalPortland laboratory and researched the topic relentlessly.  Willy has since given presentations on Modulus of Elasticity to contractors, an independent testing laboratory, and structural engineering firms.  Willy is now the Quality Control Manager for CalPortland’s Southern California Materials division.
