Distress and deterioration of concrete may be caused by many different factors such as accidental loading, chemical reactions, corrosion of embedded metal, freezing and thawing, and inadequate construction or design. This course provides guidance on evaluating the condition of the concrete in a structure, relating the condition of the concrete to the underlying cause or causes of that condition, selecting an appropriate repair material and method for any deficiency found, using the selected materials and methods to repair or rehabilitate the structure, and preparing concrete investigation reports for repair and rehabilitation projects. The course materials are based entirely on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Engineering Manual EM 1110-2-2002: Evaluation and Repair of Concrete Structures (1995 edition, 184 pages). This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
