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.
Presentation will discuss Vision 2020 (Development, Successes and Challenges) as well as items which still need to be completed. This portion of the presentation will be followed by an overview of the presenter's perspective on the future needs for the concrete repair industry. All attendees will be invited to participate in a workshop to develop a complete list of industry needs (consensus if possible).
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.
This video will illustrate an example of how various sections of ACI 562 are applied in the execution of a Precast/Prestressed Double-Tee repair project. Methods of evaluation and analysis, as guided by ACI 562, will be presented with a discussion of how these provisions can lead to various repair approaches.
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.
Construction errors such as the misplacement of reinforcing steel and modifications like the addition of openings traditionally required intrusive repair methods. The addition of structural steel support or enlargement of the concrete elements is often not aesthetically pleasing or practical and the cost and time impacts are onerous. FRP strengthening solutions are non-intrusive, practical, and can be implemented quickly without major impact on the other building trades. The presentation will guide the audience through the feasibility assessment of FRP strengthening and implementation of the strengthening solution. The roles of the various parties, including the Engineer of Record, the FRP Design Engineer, the General Contractor, the Structural Contractor, and the FRP Installer, will be illustrated. Photographs of completed repairs will be presented.
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.
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.
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 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.
