The American Concrete Institute recently announced that it is launching a series of seminars hosted at its headquarters in Farmington Hills, Michigan.

“Highly recognized speakers will offer face-to-face interaction, and free resources and referencing tools will be distributed for use both during and after the seminar,” according to the series overview.

The first seminar, “ACI 562: Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures,” will be held on Oct. 30.

Topics covered in the presentation will include:

  • Philosophy behind ACI 562;
  • Need for a repair code;
  • Major types of cracks in concrete;
  • Consistent repair design;
  • Repair construction challenges;
  • Significance of a quality assurance program for a successful repair;
  • Benefits for the owner;
  • Examples throughout the presentation to highlight the major issues; and
  • A real-life repair example to demonstrate the overall use of the repair code.

Future seminar topics are slated to include “Concrete Slabs-on-Ground,” “Troubleshooting Concrete Construction” and “Troubleshooting Concrete Forming and Shoring.”
