Dinner Meeting & Presentation

Concrete PetrographyBy Derek X. Cong

Concrete petrography is a unique and indispensible tool in trouble shooting materials-related construction problems. It can identify problems in concrete mix design, placement, finishing, curing, and service. This presentation will discuss the basic principles and methods of concrete petrography, and will demonstrate, through case studies, how concrete petrography can help engineers to identify construction related problems.

Dr. Cong joined WJE in 2001, bringing to the firm significant practical and theoretical experience with concrete and concrete materials.  His many projects have involved the petrographic examination of concrete, masonry, aggregate, and other materials for a variety of structures.
Dr. Cong’s extensive academic research relates to cement hydration, structure of calcium silicate hydrate (C-S-H), hydrothermal synthesis of various models compounds for C-S-H, and concrete petrography.  Prior to joining WJE, he held positions with W.R. Grace and the Erlin Company; and taught Optical Mineralogy and Petrography at Central South University of China.
