Techniques, Materials and Design Considerations for Strengthening of Existing Concrete Structures

Speaker: Shaun Loeding, P.E.
Director of Strengthening Solutions at STRUCTURAL GROUP

Although the analysis and upgrade of concrete structures is somewhat of a “scientific art” that has been practiced for many years, it has evolved into a complex science that requires a blend of engineering, material science and construction perspectives. The techniques used to design and install these materials for upgrade applications are not common to the engineering and general construction industry which can make strengthening projects even more challenging and complex than new construction.

This 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: 

  • Factors affecting the performance or capacity of reinforced concrete

  • Strengthening with externally bonded FRP systems

  • Conventional strengthening techniques for cases where FRP is not viable

  • DUCON System – micro-reinforced concrete system used for strengthening

See flyer here for additional information about the presentation and speaker.

This course will award 1 hour of continuing education.
