                        Dr. Christian Carloni and Professor Katie Wheaton, along with 6 undergraduate students from the Department, visited the Duke Energy Convention Center on October 18-21,2 019 for this year’s American Concrete Institute (ACI) Convention in Cincinnati, OH.   Dr. Carloni is currently Chair of the joint ACI-ASCE 446 Committee and attended ACI convention regularly, but this was Professor Wheaton and the students’ first appearance at a ACI Convention.  The Convention included a vast schedule of activities, suitable for all interests including sustainability, innovation, and durability, providing great exposure to novel ideas, networking opportunities, and the student FRP composites competition featuring a variety of teams from all over the world.  The Department provided sponsorship for its faculty and students to participate this event.  The excitement among attendees is being directed towards forming a formal ACI chapter at CWRU.
