Upcoming Public Seminars

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

Price: $395 ACI Member / $495 Non-member / $150 Student

Continuing Education Credit: 7.5 PDH / 0.75 CEU

Register: May 1 (Terracon, Cincinnati, OH) 8am - 5pm

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.

The training will be led by Tarek Alkhrdaji, PhD, PE, Vice President of Engineering with Structural Technologies, Maryland; and Khaled Nahlawi, PhD, PE, Distinguished Engineer at the American Concrete Institute.

Troubleshooting Concrete Construction

Continuing Education Credit: 7.5 PDH / 0.75 CEU

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

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.

Attendees will receive the following ACI publications:
• Specifications for Structural Concrete ACI 301-16
• Guide for Concrete Floor and Slab Construction ACI 302.1R-15
• Guide to Cast-in-Place Architectural Concrete Practice ACI 303R-12
• Guide to Curing Concrete ACI 308R-16
• Identification and Control of Visible Effects of Consolidation on Formed Concrete Surfaces
• ACI 309.2R-15

Concrete Slabs-On-Ground

Continuing Education Credit: 7.5 PDH / 0.75 CEU

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

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

Attendees will receive the following ACI publications:
• Guide for Concrete Floors and Slab Construction ACI 302.1R-15
• Design of Slabs-on-Ground ACI 360R-10

Troubleshooting Concrete Forming and Shoring

Continuing Education Credit: 7.5 PDH / 0.75 CEU

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

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.
