The inaugural ACI 563-18 concrete repair specifications have arrived, and immediately one wonders, “What makes concrete repair specifications different from new concrete specifications?” An enrollee will learn implications for architects and engineers when specifying concrete repair, and special requirements for bracing and shoring, surface preparation, and the use of proprietary materials. At last, repair specifiers have a foundation document on which they can rely for a wide range of projects, from small repair projects to large building-wide rehabilitation work.

Table of Contents
1. Explain reasons specifications for repair of concrete in buildings was developed to help engineers and contractors perform repairs.
2. Discuss similarities in the written text of ACI 563 as compared to specifications to new concrete construction according to ACI 301 Specifications for Structural Concrete.
3. Describe strategies and design procedures to shore and brace damaged or deteriorated concrete members that require rehabilitation or repair and describe the submittal process to perform, approve and inspect the shoring work before, during, and after construction.
4. Recall specification procedures, such as products and execution, to specify proper equipment for concrete removal of unsound concrete to produce suitable concrete surface profiles and remove bond-inhibiting materials.
