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 new ACI 562-19, “Code Requirements for Assessment, Repair and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures,” was developed to provide design professionals a code for the assessment of the 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, non-building structures. ACI 562-19 was specifically developed to work with the International Existing Building Code (IEBC) or to be adopted as a stand-alone code.
Purchase publication Code Requirements for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures and Commentary (ACI 562-19) and publication Guide to the Code for Evaluation, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Concrete Buildings (562MAN-20) together. Hard copies only.
This is a reference specification that the architect/engineer can apply to any construction repair and rehabilitation project involving structural concrete by citing it in the project specifications.
Mandatory requirements and optional requirements checklists are provided to assist the architect/engineer in supplementing the provisions of this specification, as required or needed, by designating or specifying individual project requirements. The first section covers general construction requirements for all repair work. The second section covers shoring and bracing of the structure or member to be repaired, and addresses sequencing of repair work as the structure is unloaded and reloaded. The third section covers concrete removal and preparation of the concrete substrate for repair, and defines common equipment and methods. The next five sections cover materials and proportioning of concrete; proprietary cementitious and polymer repair materials; reinforcement; production, placing...
This exciting new publication has been sought for years, and it fills a need for a practical and current guide on evaluating, testing, and, where needed, repairing existing masonry. The book provided background, reference material, and guidance to design professionals, building owners, and contractors on existing masonry. Construction characteristics of masonry structures, typical material properties, and analytical approaches are included for historic, transitional, and modern masonry construction typologies. The main focus of the book is structural stabilization, strengthening, and retrofit with maintenance and serviceability items (such as water penetration and cleaning) addressed as subtopics.
This bundle includes the 110.1 (2016), 110.2 (2020), 330.2 (2016) Guide Specifications. The documents cover Guide Specifications for Structural Concrete Repair, Epoxy Injection, and Externally Bonded FRP Fabric Systems for Strengthening Concrete Structures, respectively.
