What's the cure for concrete that cracks early, deteriorates prematurely, generates unwanted call-backs and has a shorter-than-anticipated service life? Internal Curing: a process that leverages new knowledge about an old material (lightweight concrete aggregate) to create better performing concrete. In this course you will learn how internal curing - a true "disruptor technology" - is re-shaping the concrete industry and how this simple, cost-effective strategy can be applied to virtually any concrete application to improve its durability, sustainability and performance.
