Honeycombing: Structural or Cosmetic?
The jury is out amongst design engineers, contractors, owners, and concrete specialists as to whether honeycombing presents a structural issue or just a cosmetic one. This presentation will explore the occurrence of honeycombing in concrete structural members and review two local case studies to find the answer of how the speaker determined when to consider honeycombing a structural defect or a cosmetic one.
The presentation will discuss the following:
The mysterious world of concrete
Causes of voids in concrete commonly called honeycombing
Tools commonly used to chip concrete and why they are or are not appropriate
Repairs commonly applied and why they are or are not appropriate. Reference will be made to the ACI/ICRI Concrete Repair Manual
