Abstract:
Extensive cracking in the floors of a seven-story parking structure was cause for concern for its structural integrity. A structural capacity evaluation revealed undercapacity in beams and slabs and a load posting was recommended. The cracked floors were repaired by expoxy resin injection. The repairs are standing up well. Condition evaluation of the floors indicated some potential for corrosion of reinforcing stell. The floors are proposed to be protected partly by applying penetrant sealers and partly by installing a waterproofing membrane system.
