NEW! This seminar will look at typical problems the Industry faces after the walls are cast. These problems sometimes lead to callbacks, back-charges by Builders, and complaints by prospective homebuyers. Each problem will be discussed technically from an engineering prospective and then from performance criteria. Discussion will center on remediation and solutions necessary prior to casting. This session will help attendees address common issues such as surface defects in flatwork, wall cracks, support for long walls, anchorage challenges and tolerances.
1. Review how to handle scaling/spalling, water vapor transmission, vapor barriers and chloride ion.
2. Recognize difference between temperature, shrinkage and structural wall cracks
3. Determine proper pilasters for supporting long walls and how to brace walls against backfill problems
4. Analyze tolerances of wall dimensions and anchorage requirements
