ACI 562: Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures 

Price: $395 ACI Member / $495 Non-member

Continuing Education Credit: 7.5 PDH / 0.75 CEU

In 2016, the American Concrete Institute published a new ACI 562 code on assessing, repairing, and rehabilitating existing concrete structures. It is the first U.S. code produced specifically for the repair of existing reinforced concrete structures. This performance-based code offers flexibility in the design and produces consistency in the repair industry. Topics covered in this presentation include:

Philosophy behind ACI 562
Need for a repair code
Major types of cracks in concrete
Consistent repair design
Repair construction challenges
Significance of a quality assurance program for a successful repair
Benefits for the owner
Examples throughout the presentation to highlight the major issues
A real-life repair example to demonstrate the overall use of the repair code

A new guide document for the code with additional information and project examples that help users interpret the code requirements will also be highlighted.

Understanding ACI 318-14 Building Code Requirements

Price: $199 ACI Member / $349 Non-member

Continuing Education Credit: 7.5 PDH / 0.75 CEU

The newest edition of ACI 318, “Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-14),” was completely reorganized from a designer’s perspective. This course will help you get acquainted with the new organization so that you can learn to quickly navigate the code and demonstrate how you can ensure that your design fully complies with ACI 318. Design examples will be used to demonstrate the use of the code and also introduce the ACI design requirements for elements of structures often used for design in seismic regions.

The training will be led by Randall W. Poston, Ph.D., P.E., ACI Vice President and Past Chair of ACI Committee 318, and Mr. Matthew Senecal, P.E., ACI Director of Engineering. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask these experts in-depth questions about the building code requirements and see applications on how it is used in practice.

Concrete Slabs-On-Ground

This seminar will provide an overview of concrete slabs-on-ground. Information regarding how to design, specify, and build quality concrete floors will be shared. Details regarding soil support systems including vapor transmission control, post-tensioning for expansive soils, and more will be discussed. The causes of joint curling and cracking and how this affects the design, materials, and construction of concrete floors will be discussed.

(7.5 PDH / 0.75 CEU)

Coming Spring 2019 (ACI Headquarters: Farmington Hills, MI, USA) 

Troubleshooting Concrete Construction

This seminar will discuss the steps involved in concrete troubleshooting including: identifying symptoms that may affect the appearance or structural integrity of the material, collecting information, developing a preliminary diagnosis, conducting testing of the material properties, and confirming the diagnosis. The causes and solutions of common concrete problems will be examined.

(7.5 PDH / 0.75 CEU)

Coming Spring 2019 (ACI Headquarters: Farmington Hills, MI, USA)

Troubleshooting Concrete Forming and Shoring

One-day seminar for contractors and engineers. Attendees will learn tips and traps associated with form stripping and reshoring and will work through calculations for a reshoring problem. Instructors will address tolerances for vertical alignment and slope, slab deflections, balcony drainage issues, and tolerance incompatibilities with cladding materials. Expectations for formed surface quality will be covered with tips for minimizing surface effects such as bugholes that can lead to disputes. Attendees will also learn how to achieve forming economies and compute form pressures. Advanced topics such as one-sided forming, forming overhangs, and SCC formwork basics will also be covered.

(7.5 PDH / 0.75 CEU)

Coming Fall 2019 (ACI Headquarters: Farmington Hills, MI, USA)
