Student competition at the Fall 2018 ACI convention in Las Vegas

The Missouri Chapter ACI had 3 teams entering the student competition at Las Vegas in October, 2018. This year's competition was to make a 4 X 8 inch cylinder of pervious concrete. The cylinder was judged on how fast water would pass thorough the concrete, tensile strength as determined by the splitting cylinder test, the cement efficiency of the mixture design and a written report.

This is a worldwide event with 52 schools from South America, Canada, USA and the Middle East competing. Although our schools did not win, they did represent our chapter well. The results are were:

  • University of Missouri Kansas City - 10th overall, best result was 3rd in tensile strength
  • Missouri Science and Technology – 14th overall, best result was 8th in report writing
  • Southern Illinois University Edwardsville – 45th overall, best result 24th in tensile strength.
