The Certification course, ICRI Concrete Surface Repair Technician—Grade 1, is for individuals who want to become a qualified inspector for concrete repair and qualifies the individual to perform pre- and post-placement inspections and testing. It includes the Education Course — five (5) online training modules and graded exams, an online knowledge exam and a performance exam (Video submission is included in course fee. When available, on-location live performance exam for an additional fee). By passing the five (5) online training modules and exams, the online knowledge exam, and performance exam, an ICRI Concrete Surface Repair Technician—Grade 1 certification will be issued by ICRI, and the individual will receive a certificate and wallet card. The individual can also be added to the ICRI Certified Concrete Surface Repair Technician database on the ICRI website if desired.
The Education Course is for everyone who desires fundamental knowledge and best practices on concrete surface repair and requires participation in five (5) online training modules and graded exams, with each module incorporating education and training with questions. Those who successfully complete this program, including passing all five (5) online training modules and exams, will receive a Certificate of Achievement from ICRI.
Phoscrete is an easy-to-use, fast-setting, long-lasting Magnesium-Alumina-Liquid-Phosphate (MALP) concrete repair material for repairs in extreme environments (-15°F to +115°F). Instead of water, Phoscrete’s pre-extended dry component mixes include Liquid Phosphate Activator (Freezing Point = -20°F). Working time and set time are easily controlled by supercooling the activator in hot temperatures, and by adding fast-set admixtures in cold temperatures. The presentation will include laboratory testing, field installation, and a small installation.
This demonstration will introduce the WJE CASLE™ (Corrosion Assessment Service Life Evaluation) software for predicting corrosion-related damage in reinforced concrete structures. This tool helps engineers more effectively quantify remaining service life and guide repair decisions for existing structures, as well as evaluate protection/durability design strategies for new structures. Developed in-house by WJE’s materials engineers for WJE structural assessment projects, WJE CASLE™ offers full control of the evaluation process and facilitates a customizable approach to construction parameters and exposure conditions unique to each project. Advantages of the software include consideration of site-specific conditions such as construction geometry, sealers, coatings, corrosion-resistant reinforcing, presence/installation of overlays, existing chloride profiles, concrete cracking, and two-sided exposure. Model features will be outlined with a focus on evaluation of existing structures.
In this presentation, we will address the effect that corrosion has on our concrete infrastructure, including buildings, bridges, sea walls, cooling towers, docks, and many other reinforced concrete structures.
This comprehensive book describes the causes, effects, and remedies for concrete wear and failure. It is a practical guide to evaluation of deterioration and its causes, selection of repair methods and materials, surface preparation, and quality assurance of the finished product. Hundreds of illustrations show users how to analyze, maintain, and repair concrete structures for optimal performance and cost-effectiveness.
