This is another in a series of articles intended to explain some of the new content in the 2016 edition of the ACI 562 Code. The basis of a design report for concrete repair projects is explained. The report provides the owner, and, when required, the building official, a simple means of understanding the conditions that led to the repair project, why repairs are necessary, and what actions need to be taken to ensure the long-term performance of the structure.
