This guideline provides information on the properties and characteristics of grout materials for selection of a proper grout material to control water leakage through cracks and other discontinuities in concrete structures. It is also for the selection of grout materials for crack injection to control leaks through cracks in concrete structures. (formerly no. 03738).
This guideline describes the tools, techniques, and processes that are used in the evaluation of masonry façade structures. It offers background into the history and evolution of masonry structure design and construction.
This guideline is intended to provide information on electrochemical techniques used to mitigate the corrosion of steel in atmospherically exposed concrete structures. The information presented is based on testing and the experience of owners, engineers, contractors, and suppliers. This guideline includes information on impressed current and galvanic cathodic protection, electrochemical chloride extraction, and realkalization.
Provides information and guidance for the selection, evaluation, and use of surface applied corrosion inhibitors (SACI) for corrosion mitigation and supplement sound judgement by engineers, consultants, or others specializing in the repair of reinforced concrete structures experiencing corrosion induced damage. Understanding the existing concrete conditions and corrosion levels in the structure, the function and limitations of SACI materials, requirements for proper application and quality assurance/control during application, and evaluation and monitoring the performance are addressed.
ACI and ICRI have published an updated “Guide to the Code for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures, A Companion to ACI 562-19.” This guide provides the licensed design professional with the knowledge, skill, and judgment to interpret and properly use ACI 562-19, and provides insight into the use and benefits of the code for contractors, material manufacturers, building owners, and building officials.
This guideline provides information for the selection and application of materials for fluid-applied waterproofing systems to concrete pedestrian and vehicular traffic surfaces. Properly selected and applied traffic membrane systems can protect concrete from deterioration caused by abrasion, moisture intrusion, environmental forces, and chemical attack. The guideline includes system design, material properties and types, project implementation, system installation, and health and safety.
This guideline is intended to provide information for the selection and application of materials
for fluid-applied waterproofing systems to concrete for horizontal pedestrian and vehicular
Concrete is subject to deterioration by a variety of mechanisms. Properly selected and applied
traffic membrane systems can protect concrete from deterioration caused by abrasion, moisture
intrusion, environmental forces (freezing-and-thawing cycling), and chemical attack. This
guideline provides information on the common service conditions, basic review of the properties
of concrete, surface preparation, system designs, and materials used for traffic membranes.
This guideline is intended to assist architects, engineers, owners and their agents, developers, general contractors, and flooring contractors who are accountable for the successful installation of a floor covering or coating over an interior concrete sub-floor that is on, below, or above grade. This guideline provides information regarding moisture issues, moisture testing methods, interpretation of test results, and moisture mitigation strategies. The information provided in the guideline is meant to assist in the successful installation of floor coverings and coatings.

Reported by ACI Committee 562
This latest version of the code was developed to provide design professionals a code for the assessment of damage and deterioration, and the design of appropriate repair and rehabilitation strategies. The code provides minimum requirements for assessment, repair, and rehabilitation of existing structural concrete buildings, members, systems and, where applicable, nonbuilding structures. ACI 562-21 was specifically developed to be incorporated into the International Existing Building Code (IEBC) or to be adopted as a stand-alone code.
