Short Description:
After only six years of service, a 6-foot long narrow piece of concrete spalled off an exposed slab edge of a 680-foot tall high-rise in Texas, and fell 160 feet to the podium below. The spall was attributed to premature corrosion at the drip edge. The building featured approximately 9,200 feet of exposed slab edge over its height. Given the potential risk to safety and property of additional concrete spalls, the Owner requested forensic investigations, which (1) identified other areas with signs of similar distress and (2) determined the underlying problem of low reinforcement cover at the drip edge was pervasive. In response, repair options were developed to address the problem and restore intended durability. Given the building height, difficult exterior-only access, downtown environment, and post-tensioning anchors along the slab edge, the repair design and construction both had unique challenges to consider and overcome.

Short Description:
Moisture-related problems with floor coverings and coatings are a serious and costly issue. Each year the direct and in-direct costs associated with such problems amount to billions of unplanned dollars. In this 5-part webinar series, experts in the field of moisture in concrete, testing, mitigation and repair will share information and experience in a ground up approach to the causes and solutions to such problems. The program covers the sources of moisture in concrete, the affect moisture has on slab behavior and the installation of flooring materials, the test methods used to properly assess slab moisture condition, moisture mitigation strategies, and more.

Short Description:
Moisture coming from, or through a concrete floor slab, can lead to conditions that are damaging to floor coverings, coatings, the building’s environment, and the ability to store moisture sensitive products directly on a floor slab.  In this webinar, attendees will learn where potentially damaging levels of moisture come from, how moisture migrates, and what design measures are an absolute necessity to minimize the risk of moisture-related problems.

Short Description:
Concrete is one of the most versatile building materials in the world and can produce floor slabs that provide an excellent platform for floor coverings and coatings. Water is an essential component of every concrete mixture.  Without it, concrete is not workable and finishable. If water is not used, the cement in the mixture cannot hydrate and gain the required strength.  However, once placement, finishing, and curing is complete, remaining moisture in the concrete can adversely affect the installation of flooring materials and the behavior of the slab itself. This webinar will discuss the importance of water in a concrete mixture and review a few concrete problems that water can cause, such as shrinkage, curling, ASR, delamination, dusting, and scaling. In addition, attendees will learn the design and construction considerations that can be used to minimize the potentially adverse effects of moisture in concrete.

This guide specification aids the Design Professional in the preparation of technical specifications for inclusion directly into a project manual for the construction of cementitious bonded overlays that are in line with the state-of-the-art materials and methods used in the concrete repair industry. The document provides an outline for developing the three parts of the specification through suggested text, references, and commentary for evaluating alternatives. This specification section must be used with ICRI 110.1, Guide Specifications for Structural Concrete Repairs. Both the printed and PDF copies include a Word document with hidden text for easy modification of text to meet specific cementitious bonded overlay project requirements. PDF version is free to ICRI members when ordered online.

Short Description:
Using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Systems (aka UAVs aka Drones) continues to be a hot topic for engineers and designers. Within the past 10 years, we have seen technology change how we live, work, play and learn. These advances in technology have enabled humans to be more efficient as well as socially and environmentally conscious and connected. Advances in engineering technology and efficiency have expanded structural engineer’s roles in inspection services. This presentation will highlight drone utilization for exterior surveys and inspection, impact on the built environment, and how drones will continue to influence in the future. This includes areas that are too dangerous for humans or structures where rigging can be difficult or impossible as well as the cost benefits of using a drone. The presentation will also delve into the effectiveness and appropriate applications of drone usage, specifically for hands-on applications.
