The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has announced a new seminar: ACI 562: Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures.
The ACI 562 code is the first U.S. code produced specifically for the repair of existing reinforced concrete structures and has been adopted in several states and municipalities, with additional locations considering. This performance-based code offers flexibility in the design and produces consistency in the repair industry. Topics covered in this presentation include:
- Philosophy behind ACI 562
- Need for a repair code
- Major types of cracks in concrete
- Consistent repair design
- Repair construction challenges
- Significance of a quality assurance program for a successful repair
- Benefits for the owner
- Examples throughout the presentation to highlight the major issues
- A real-life repair example to demonstrate the overall use of the repair code
The seminar will be held on April 23, near Detroit, Mich., at ACI World Headquarters, in Farmington Hills.
Attendees will receive free copies of ACI 562-19 Code Requirements for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures and Commentary; MNL-3(16) Guide to the Code for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Buildings; and a printout of the presentation slides.
