ACI ANNOUNCES NEW CONCRETE REPAIR CODE

The American Concrete Institute announces the availability of the new ACI 562-16: Code Requirements for Evaluation, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Concrete Buildings and Commentary.

The code requirements represent a major milestone in the industry—not only is it the first material-specific set of requirements for repair materials, but it also serves as ACI’s first code specifically for repairing reinforced concrete. Included in the requirements are all aspects of concrete repair, from conception to completion, including the basis for compliance, evaluation and analysis, design of structural repairs, durability, and construction.

Building specifically on the 2013 edition of ACI 562, revisions to definitions in ACI 562-16 bring this document into conformance with the International Existing Buildings Code and other standards for existing structures. ACI 562-16 also includes the addition of specific criteria requirements for assessment and design of repair and rehabilitation for varying levels of damage, deterioration, or faulty construction.

The new ACI 562 Repair Code Portal showcases ACI’s many resources on concrete repair including informational videos, free on-demand presentations on the new code requirements, recent industry article on concrete repair, and more. Additional information at www.concrete.org or by calling 248-848-3700.
