Concrete Structures: Protection, Repair and Rehabilitation by R. Dodge Woodson

By R. Dodge Woodson

The luck of a fix or rehabilitation undertaking is determined by the categorical plans designed for it. Concrete constructions: safeguard, fix and Rehabilitation presents advice on comparing the situation of the concrete in a constitution, touching on the situation of the concrete to the underlying reason or factors of that situation, deciding on a suitable fix fabric and strategy for any deficiency chanced on, and utilizing the chosen fabrics and strategies to fix or rehabilitate the constitution. tips is additionally supplied for engineers all in favour of holding concrete and getting ready concrete research stories for fix and rehabilitation initiatives. concerns for sure really good different types of rehabilitation tasks also are given. moreover, the writer interprets cryptic codes, theories, standards and information into effortless to appreciate language. Tip containers are used to spotlight key components of the textual content in addition to code concerns in response to the foreign Code Council or overseas construction Codes. The e-book comprises a variety of labored out examples and equations. Case experiences can be integrated in addition to diagrams and schematics to supply visuals to the book.

Fire damage, while rare, can also contribute to problems associated with excessive heat. The code allows one to assume that the ends of columns built integrally with a structure will remain fixed. This assumption comes into play when one is computing gravity load moments on columns. Temperature changes 29 Did you know that hydration of concrete can raise the temperature of freshly placed concrete by up to 100°F? It can! Rarely is the temperature increase consistent in all of the concrete, and this can generate problems.

You must also keep in mind how long will the repair be expected to last when you are choosing the type of repair material to use. 38 CHAPTER 4 Planning and design of concrete repair MANUFACTURER’S DATA Most manufacturers offer information on the qualities of their products. You should be able to find information on (1) the compressive strength, (2) the tensile strength, (3) the slant-shear bond, and (4) the modulus of elasticity. Even with this information, you may have more questions that are not answered in the manufacturer’s documents—for example, drying shrinkage, tensile bond strength, creep, absorption, and water vapor transmission.

Microcracking along with exposed reinforcing steel are likely to occur. HANDHELD IMPACT BREAKERS Handheld impact breakers work well for limited concrete removal. These are basically jackhammers. The breaker may be powered by compressed air, hydraulic pressure, self-contained gasoline engines, or self-contained electric motors. Small, shallow sections of concrete can be demolished with great mobility when a handheld breaker is used. Both mechanical and welded splices are allowed by code. This type of concrete removal is effective on concrete with a depth of up to 6 inches.
