SCP Meeting Minutes

Atlanta, GA - December 4, 2012

Attendees: Ted Sibbick, Daniela Mauro, Mauro Scali, Nancy Whiting, Ali Gurhan, Mark Lukkcarila, Kirsten Freeman, Anol Mukhopadhyay, David Rothstein, Bob O’Neill, and Nick Scaglione


The Code of Ethics committee will be dissolved. If, for any reason, changes are needed to the Code of Ethics, the responsibility will fall to the By-Laws Committee. The By-laws will need to be revised to remove the Code of Ethics as a committee.

Nick Scaglione discussed the need to fill all of our committees with active members to get more of the membership involved in the running of the society. Currently the board members are the only ones performing the committee duties. Volunteers were solicited at the meeting and are shown below. The italicized names are officers that are required committee members in accordance with the By-Laws. The board members will work to fill the remaining openings.

Membership: Gerard Moulzolf, Ted Sibbick, Mark Lukkarilla
Nominations: Laura Powers, Kirsten Freeman
By-Laws: Mauro Scali, Bob O’Neill, Ted Sibbick
Programs: Nancy Whiting, Anol Mukhopadhyay, Daniela Mauro

Membership (86 total members, 6 new members in 2012 - 3 voting and 3 associate)
There was some discussion on a way to make our meetings more accessible to increase remote participation by members who are not able to attend our meetings. One suggestion was that we may be able to provide on-line participation for members who are unable to attend the meeting. Mauro Scali and Daniela Mauro will investigate possibilities for on-line participation and report their findings at the June 2013 meeting, which will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana.

SCP Membership Certificates
Laura Powers is working on a certificate for voting and associate members.

Nick Scaglione gave a presentation on the Lake Loramie Spillway and Dam structures.

Ali Gurhan gave a presentation that illustrated examples of DEF, ASR, and Freeze-Thaw deterioration that he has encountered.

Ted Sibbick gave a presentation on estimating water-cementitious materials ratio in concrete using fluorescent microscopy. He cautioned that the method works best for plain portland cement concrete mixtures and shows greater variability in mixtures containing pozzolans or alternative cementitious materials, such as fly ash and slag.
