Resources

In many environments, nonmetallics offer attractive performance characteristics and address environmental and sustainability challenges. Numerous guides, reports and specifications on nonmetallic technologies in concrete have been published over the past several decades.

 

NEx will expand knowledge and expertise in nonmetallic construction and materials. Additional education programs, certifications, standards development and adoption, and research are envisioned in the future.

Webinars

This webinar, jointly sponsored by NEx and American Concrete Institute (ACI) in May 2023, explores the use of Non-metallic (NM) fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites as cost-effective solutions for the built environment, offering limitless shape possibilities through the pultrusion process. By addressing limited awareness among professionals, it aims to provide participants with the necessary knowledge and tools to understand and implement NM pultruded solutions. To earn continuing education credit for this webinar, please visit ACI University.

This webinar, jointly sponsored by NEx and the American Concrete Institute (ACI) in April 2023, focuses on providing useful guidance for engineers and contractors interested in utilizing GFRP bars, with a special emphasis on the new manuals available for designing and installing GFRP-reinforced concrete. These valuable resources will help you familiarize yourself with the use of GFRP bars in your projects. To earn continuing education credit for this webinar, please visit ACI University.

Due to an overwhelming response and questions from the audience of NEx Webinar 001: Practical Utilization of the New ACI CODE 440.11 on GFRP Reinforced Concrete, an extended session was recorded to address all the questions from the participants.

Industry Resources

By Jamil Al Bagawi, Saudi Aramco Chief Engineer

With the world’s building stock expected to double by 2050, reducing construction’s environmental impact is the key challenge facing the sector in the 21st century. There is a need for alternative materials that perform as well as – if not better than – their conventional counterparts, but are more environmentally friendly.

By Motaz Al Mashouk, Saudi Aramco Engineering Services Executive Director

Geotechnical engineering involves using geological knowledge to solve engineering problems – and it is helping Aramco preserve its desert operations through innovations in sand and soil stabilization, without harming the natural environment.

NEx Co-Sponsorship Requests

What constitutes co-sponsorship?

 

NEx co-sponsors events to facilitate the dissemination of the latest unbiased technical information on nonmetallics in building and construction sector. With NEx's co-sponsorship, help is provided to promote an event by publishing an announcement at NEx website and through NEx social media.

 

Co-sponsorship does not involve any financial commitments by the Center.

 

If NEx decides to cosponsor an event, use of the NEx name and NEx logo are encouraged in the event program and publicity materials.
