This is the initial document in a series of guide specifications to be prepared by ICRI. The guide specification offers a methodology for standardizing the essential requirements for structural concrete repairs by providing specification text, optional requirements, and commentary to allow the user to tailor the document to a specific concrete repair project, and use as a technical specification section in a complete project manual. Both the printed and PDF copies include a Word document with hidden text for easy modification of text to meet specific repair project requirements.
This guideline can be used to educate supervisors, craft workers, owners, and engineers in safe work practices for the concrete repair industry. The guideline will have universal appeal, as it has been developed to be a visual tool that depicts the safe performance of specific tasks and the hazards associated with those tasks. The requirements described are based on the most recent OSHA standards and are intended to provide guidance and training in the planning and execution of repair and restoration projects.
Este Lineamiento pretende ser una herramienta usada para educar a supervisores, trabajadores del oficio, propietarios e ingenieros sobre las prácticas de trabajo seguras en la industria de reparación de concreto. El lineamiento se ha desarrollado para ser una herramienta visual que representa el desempeño seguro de tareas específicas y los peligros asociados con ellas. Los requerimientos descritos aquí se basan en los estándares de OSHA más recientes y pretenden proporcionar una guía y capacitación en la planeación y ejecución de proyectos de reparación y restauración.
Familiarity with contract types, the selection of appropriate repair work items, and documentation of completed work is essential for successful completion of a concrete repair project.This guide is intended to assist owners, consultants, and contractors in defining recommended methods of quantity measurement and contract types for concrete repair work.
This is the first time compensation and benefits have been studied for the concrete repair industry. More than 80% of business managers and HR professionals say their companies either participate in or purchase at least one salary survey each year. Of the 3,308 firms contacted, 321 responded to the survey, (9.9%). Most respondents (81%) have their headquarters in the United States while 13% are in Canada and 6% in other countries.
This guideline is intended to assist the contractor, licensed design professional, and owner in the development of performance specifications for quality assurance and quality control of epoxy injection of concrete cracks. It includes process-control methods to assess if satisfactory injection work is being performed. Quality assurance methods described include visual observations and testing samples during the injection work, and removing concrete core samples and performing nondestructive testing of completed repairs.
This guide provides a recommended method of evaluating the adequacy of concrete surface preparation and tensile bond strength of cementitious and polymer concrete surface repairs using the in-situ drilled core tensile pulloff test. The guide outlines equipment and material requirements, the test procedure, reporting, and acceptance criteria. This update also includes failure modes for concrete substrate tests.
This guideline will assist contractors, owners, engineers, architects, and material suppliers in the selection of nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods for evaluating the condition of concrete structures. NDE can be a very useful method to provide quality control and assurance of repairs and long-term performance monitoring. Considerations in planning and executing an NDE program, including correlating with destructive methods, are discussed in the guideline. Guidance, including a brief synopsis of each method, is presented for selecting which NDE methods are appropriate for the concrete property/condition being assessed.
Outlines the steps in preparing concrete for replacement material in areas where corroded reinforcing steel has caused cracking, spalling, delamination, or other types of deterioration. Topics covered include exposing and undercutting reinforcing steel, edge and surface conditioning, repair of reinforcing steel, and removal geometry.
Este lineamiento proporciona una guía sobre la remoción de concreto y los procedimientos para la preparación de la superficie paray la reparación del de concreto deteriorado provocado por la corrosión del acero de refuerzo. Se discuten la geometría de la remoción, la configuración del área de reparación, el proceso de remoción, la preparación del borde, la reparación del refuerzo, la preparación e inspección de la superficie necesarias para las reparaciones durables. Se incluyen consideraciones especiales para la remoción de concreto asociada con la reparación de columnas.
