Code Requirements for Evaluation, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Concrete Buildings and Commentary.
This publication provides standard requirements for evaluating existing concrete buildings and then the subsequent structural repair, rehabilitation, and strengthening of those buildings.
The 562-13 provides rules for a preliminary evaluation that determines the "design basis code" that is, if the building can be repaired based on the ACI 318 version used in the original design, or if the repair needs to comply with the current ACI 318. The code provides rules for determining strength of in-situ material, performing structural analysis, designing repairs for strength and durability, requirements for stability and shoring of construction, and inspection and testing of repairs. Commentary provides application guidance as well as references for additional information.
A must-have document for structural concrete repairs.
