Maintaining Aging Infrastructure
So while the foremost skill set in many concrete projects is structural engineering and risk assessment, the detailed calculations of stresses to identify or address critical areas of concern, require accurate knowledge of structure-specific material properties. In these scenarios, "book" values often have little value, and even well-kept construction records may have limited applicability if the age and the service conditions have caused material property degradation. As a project manager, it is critical to know when a detailed materials evaluation is necessary, and how to increase the confidence in the engineering basis of repair/replace decisions to maximize the value received with limited budgets. Real world examples will be presented to demonstrate the important role of material properties in concrete engineering assessments and repair projects
