ACI and ICRI Publish New Guide

ACI and ICRI Publish New GuideThe American Concrete Institute and International Concrete Repair Institute have published an updated “Guide to the Code for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures.” ACI and ICRI publish new guide to provide licensed design professionals with the knowledge, skill, and judgment to interpret and properly use the ACI 562, “Code Requirements for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures.”

This updated guide is separated into three main components:
  1. Chapter navigation for clarity and understanding of the relative portions of ACI 562 Code;
  2. Appendix B, providing an overall view of the new ACI 563, “Specifications for Repair of Concrete
    in Buildings;”
  3. Project examples illustrating the process of carrying out a concrete building assessment, repair,
    rehabilitation, or strengthening project from inception through completion.

New features of this guide include an appendix addressing specifications with examples. It also includes clear definitions of the responsibilities and scope of the repair, rehabilitation, or strengthening. The guide also includes three new examples and five updated examples guiding licensed design professionals through the code provisions of actual concrete repair projects.

The Guide to the Code for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation is a must to the licensed design  professional undertaking repair, rehabilitation, and strengthening of existing concrete structures. The guide is available in both print and digital formats. It is also available as part of the ACI Concrete Repair Subscription. For more information visit concrete.org/store or icri.org.
