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.

Table of Contents
1. Determine what design code should be implemented for the assessment and repair or strengthening of an existing structure.
2. Understand that new members added and their connections to an existing structure are based on the current building code.
3. Explain the objective of a concrete repair code, which is to produce a document that provides uniform set of requirements that is flexible and addresses the overall repair issues such as conventional reinforced concrete, prestressed concrete, or fiber reinforced polymer repair methods.
4. Understand that evaluation is the first step in the assessment and repair process to determine if a structure is in compliance with the original design code and if it is safe.
