About this Event

Join the New England ICRI Chapter for a dinner presentation on Chemical Attack on Concrete Structures by presenters Tim Montgomery, P.E. and Kevin Gallerie, P.E., both of CDM Smith Inc. (see bio’s below). Note new location at the Ferncroft Country Club.

This presentation will address how to evaluate and repair concrete which has undergone chemical attack. Focusing primarily on industrial and wastewater environments, the presenters will first highlight the most common types of chemical attack on structural concrete, looking at the mechanism that breaks down the concrete matrix. Next, the presentation will review methods used by engineers to assess the extents of chemical attack on concrete structures and the various methods and materials used to repair concrete damaged by chemical attack. Finally, a variety of case studies will be presented which show successful diagnosis of chemical attack and the subsequent repair methods and strategies employed to restore concrete strength and serviceability.
