The “Guide to the Code for the Assessment, Repair and Refurbishment of Existing Concrete Structures” is published as a supplement to ACI 562-19.
The American Concrete Institute
Ensuring that codes are fully understood and correctly interpreted can be a challenge. Concrete contractors now have an updated guide to the ACI Code for Assessment, Repair and Refurbishment of Existing Concrete Structures. The American Concrete Institute and the International Concrete Repair Institute have worked together to publish an updated version of the “Guide to the Code for Evaluating, Repairing, and Refurbishing Existing Concrete Structures”.
This updated guide is divided into three main components:
- Chapter navigation for clarity and understanding of the relative parts of the ACI 562 code;
- Appendix B with an overview of the new ACI 563 “Specifications for the repair of concrete in buildings”;
- Project examples that illustrate the process of carrying out a specific building appraisal, repair, refurbishment or reinforcement project from start to finish.
New features in this manual include an appendix with specifications and examples, as well as clear definitions of responsibilities and scope of repair, refurbishment, or reinforcement. The guide also includes three new examples and five updated examples to guide licensed designers through the code provisions of actual concrete repair projects.
The guide is available in both printed and digital form. Buy yours from the ACI store for $ 129 (member price $ 79): “Code Guide for Evaluating, Repairing, and Refurbishing Existing Concrete Structures.”
