Concrete Repair and Strengthening Presented By: Shaun Loeding, P.E.
Structural Technologies

The presentation will describe the design strategies, different techniques, materials and design concepts used for upgrading concrete structures. Below is a brief outline of the presentation:

  • Introduction - regarding Structural Group and the strengthening industry
  • Factors affecting the performance or capacity of reinforced concrete
    • New loads
    • Change in use
    • Construction or design errors
    • Missing, misplaced or damaged reinforcement
    • Cutting of new penetrations that affect existing reinforcement
  • Strengthening with externally bonded FRP systems
    • Typically used forms
    • Installation techniques and QA/QC
    • Design Concepts - per ACI 440 2R
    • Near-surface mounted (NSM) FRP rods
    • FRP limitations and strengthening limits
    • Case Studies
