Additionally, members of the District of Columbia Code Officials Association (DCCOA) are welcome to attend. (Membership information is located at the bottom of this page).

Event details:

Concrete Repair and Strengthening Using Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP): For several decades, fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) systems have been used to retrofit, reinforce, and rehabilitate structural components of buildings, bridges, parking structures, chimneys, piers/wharfs, tunnels, tanks/silos, and pipelines. This Workshop will explore the fundamentals of FRP, its applications, design, installation, and quality control measures relative to a variety of structural members and behaviors with specific references to provisions of ACI 440.2R, ACI 562, ACI 318, and ACI 216.1. This course will introduce and describe the benefits of uni and bi-directional carbon and glass fabrics, and high-quality, precured carbon laminates and near-surface-mount shapes. This workshop provide suggestions and insights regarding the efficient use of FRP systems for the structural and protective applications. 1 hour

Post-Installed Anchorage to Concrete and Masonry: Base material properties and building code requirements for anchoring to them present a unique challenge for structural engineers. The introduction of strength design and the constant changes to concrete anchor testing requirements facilitate the evolution of post-installed concrete anchors, where traditional post-installed anchors are permitted for use in concrete masonry. This presentation explains how concrete and masonry base materials affect post-installed anchorage design and selection. Attendees will receive an overview of the types of anchors which are suitable for each base material in addition to how and why post-installed anchors were developed for each base material. 1 hour
