Reinforcing Historic Masonry Walls
In many instances historic masonry walls require reinforcing to either stabilize or strengthen the masonry system. These situations may arise from any number of reasons including poor original design or construction, damage due to seismic activity, or just general weathering and/or deterioration. This program will outline some of the most common scenarios and present a variety of current methods available to address the causes as well as the symptoms. Particular attention will be paid to pinning and grouting systems which have been designed for structural and non-structural applications.
Innovations in FRP Structural Strengthening
This program offers an overview of the history, design considerations, practical uses and installation of both carbon and glass fiber structural strengthening. Conventional wet / dry FRP application methods will be discussed along with new product innovations such as factory pre-saturated materials. Unique strengthening systems such as rods, plates, biscuits, long filament cables will also be discussed.
Sika Corporation New Material Technologies for 2019
This program will offer a comprehensive overview of several new materials offered by Sika Corporation. Low dust and pre-textured, non-silica based aggregate coatings help to make the workplace safer and more environmentally friendly. Cold weather materials allow the construction season to start earlier and progress further into the fall and winter months. Sika’s new waterproofing technologies for potable water, foundation walls and blind side slab waterproofing will also be discussed.
This program is worth 4 PDH and 1 LU/HSW
