Keith Kesner, FACI (project manager with CVM Professional in King of Prussia, PA) will present "ACI 562-16 – The Concrete Repair Code." In June 2016, ACI published – ACI 562-16 – Code Requirements for Assessment, Repair and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures and Commentary. ACI 562-16 replaces ACI 562-13 as a standard for the repair of existing concrete structures. Significant changes to ACI 562-16 include improvements in terminology for consistency with ISO, ASCE and other documents, inclusion of requirements for level of repair based upon extent of damage present, and revisions to the interface bond provisions. The presentation will describe the concrete repair code, focusing on key changes made to the code and describe how the code is to be used on concrete repair projects.

Alfred Gardiner, PE (Principal, Laboratory Director and Manager, Concrete Consulting at Braun Intertec) will discuss Non Destructive Testing (NDT) techniques to aid in determining the type and level of deterioration. Although the definition of destructive or nondestructive can depend on your point of view. Gardiner will discuss several case studies where these techniques were used to determine the extent and type of distress the concrete is experiencing. The outcomes of the evaluations were used in determining appropriate concrete repairs.
