Date: 18 June 2024

Location: Online

As existing concrete buildings are increasingly renovated and adapted for new uses, rather than being demolished, their load capacities need to be assessed. If necessary, the buildings must be strengthened or repaired. This webinar focuses on the issues of strengthening concrete buildings when the concrete is generally sound.

The webinar provides a broad overview of practical strengthening techniques used in modern concrete rehabilitation. The bulk of the presentation is devoted to effective yet economical methods of upgrading loadcarrying capacities of buildings. The topic of strengthening gravity-load systems dominates the discussion, but the challenges involved in strengthening lateral-load-resisting systems are examined as well. Some related practical questions, such as how to evaluate concrete structural capacity, where are the best places to cut openings in concrete slabs, how the load tests are conducted, and how to strengthen sagging slab cantilevers, are also discussed.

Benefits and Learning Outcomes
