Post-tensioned concrete is a strong and durable material for construction of exposed parking structures. These types of structures are also fire resistant, but they can be damaged depending upon the severity of the fire. The structure in this presentation suffered significant fire damage early in its construction. The presentation will cover the discovery and testing methods used to determine the extent of fire damage, and the design of the repairs that were instituted to restore strength and allow construction to continue.
In new construction, cracks can appear for variety of reasons: curing, temperature deviation, pressure from adjacent conditions, or settlement. This presentation will outline various types of cracking, how to plan to avoid them, and how to address them after concrete has been placed.
Due to improper design or implementation sometimes Part of the New projects are re-executed or repaired. Islamabad - Rawalpindi BRTS (Bus Rapid transit System) Consisted of 20 Stations Covering around 23 km path connecting twin cities. Each station Roof Consisted of ACP Sheets Fixed on Aluminum Frame with Steel supports. The joints of ACP sheets were filled by Silicon but improper materiel and workmanship caused leakage in joints. Total length of joints was over 400,000 RFT. Leakage was invariably from almost every area.
Historic 19th and 20th century buildings are currently facing the necessity of meeting contemporary needs such as adaptive re-use, energy efficiency, stability, and durability. The characteristics of architecture of these periods (i.e., material, design, details, maintenance, and functionality) increasingly make it challenging to maintain authenticity while incorporating new uses. Various strategies of technical interventions can be employed to achieve good results. This presentation will cover the case study of abandoned historic hospital pavilions from the early 20th century which are being converted into a high-end residential complex. The buildings face multiple challenges related to adaptive re-use, as they will be restored and connected with new infills and a glass connector and capped with re-creation of the historic cornices.
The Fourth Edition of the most comprehensive collection of information on concrete repair ever assembled in a single source. It includes over 70 documents from many of the associations involved in the concrete repair industry’s Vision 2020 plan, including ACI, ICRI, NACE, SSPC, and the Army Corps of Engineers, and from the United Kingdom: the BRE and the Concrete Society.
This presentation is based on the updated revisions to the original document entitled Guide for the Selection of Grouts to Control Leakage in Concrete Structures. This webinar addresses the selection of chemical grouts typically used to control and/or mitigate the ingress of water in concrete structures, specifically cracks and joints.
Discover the innovative and sustainable advantages of shotcrete, a highly efficient concrete placement technique that offers engineers unparalleled flexibility in shaping and reinforcing concrete structures while achieving superior strength and durability.
This demonstration shows Sika's new one coat traffic coating systems. Sikalastic®-720 One Shot is a two-component, integral texture, fast-curing, aliphatic, elastomeric polyurethane waterproofing coating intended for vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Applied in a single step, Sikalastic®-720 One Shot replaces the need for a base coat and multiple topcoats. Sikalastic®-726 Balcony One Shot is a two-component, aliphatic, elastomeric polyurethane traffic coating system that has both superior flexibility and abrasion resistance. Easily applied in a single coat, with or without primer, and designed for pedestrian traffic, specifically balcony and pedestrian applications.
Demonstration will show the use of an anti-washout additive for use in cementitious repair systems. The demonstration will show systems with and without the additive to exhibit the system’s function in water. The additive holds the mortar together to reduce loss of paste material into the surrounding water. This reduces water contamination and improves the performance of the hardened state concrete.
