The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has released ACI CODE-562-21 Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures – Code and Commentary in print and digital formats. The committee developed the code to provide design professionals with a code for the assessment of the damage and deterioration. It also specifies the design of appropriate repair and rehabilitation strategies.
The committee wrote the ACI CODE-562-21 specifically to integrate it into building codes as a mechanism for building officials. This allows for increased confidence in performed repairs, ensuring they do these repairs in a manner that provides an acceptable level of protection for the public. Previous versions of ACI CODE-562 have already been adopted by North Carolina, Hawaii, Ohio, and Florida.
“This fourth edition of ACI CODE-562 now provides users with clearer direction when approaching a repair project using the document in conjunction with the IEBC or as a stand-alone code,” states Michael L. Tholen, ACI Managing Director, Engineering and Professional Development. “ACI CODE-562-21 provides all parties involved in a concrete repair project with a common and clearly defined set of requirements upon which to base its assessment, repair, and rehabilitation.”
This repair code is immediately available to subscribers of both the online ACI Collection of Concrete Codes, Specifications, and Practices and the ACI Concrete Repair Subscription. You can also purchase it individually in print or digital formats.
