ACI 562 Repair Code

The ACI Code Requirements for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures (ACI 562) and Commentary is the first code specifically for repairing reinforced concrete.

Providing clearly defined, uniform requirements aimed at extending the service life of existing structures, chapters cover all aspects of concrete repair, from conception to completion, including the basis for compliance, evaluation and analysis, design of structural repairs, durability, and construction.

Guide to the 562 Repair Code

Now available, the accompanying Guide to the Code for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Buildings has two components that work together to provide additional information on how to apply the performance requirements in ACI 562 and how the requirements may be applied to a broad range of projects.
