PROGRAM

CASE STUDIES IN MASONRY: EVALUATION, REPAIR, AND RESTORATION
ANDY DALRYMPLE, P.E., WHITLOCK DALRYMPLE POSTON & ASSOCIATES, INC.


The presentation uses case studies to illustrate state of the art structural and performance
evaluation methods, structural repair examples, performance repair examples, and methods to
evaluate existing construction and material compatibility for contemporary and historic restoration
projects.



Non-destructive test methods discussed include: Infrared Thermography (IRT), Surface Penetrating
Radar (SPR), Impact Echo (IE), and Pachometer. IRT and SPR can be used to verify reinforcing steel
placement in reinforced masonry and to assess the filling of the grout spaces in reinforced masonry
construction. IE surveys are useful in locating masonry headers in masonry bonded wall systems with
bond patterns that include false headers. Pachometer surveys are often used to locate reinforcing
bars in reinforced masonry metal masonry anchors in veneer and unreinforced masonry. Each
non‚Äźdestructive test method is discussed highlighting advantages and disadvantages of the methods.



Masonry performance evaluation techniques, including ASTM standard test methods to assess water
permeability and flashing system performance, are reviewed as a means of assessing existing
structures and as quality assurance tools for new construction and evaluating effectiveness of
repair methods for existing masonry. Tests and analysis tools for masonry materials and mortar are
discussed for application to restoration projects where matching the structural properties and
material properties of existing and historic masonry is important for performance of restored
masonry structures.



SUSTAINABLE RETROFITS - THE ENVELOPE, THE INTERIOR, AND THE INTERFACE WITH LEED MARIA VITERI, LEED AP BD+C, INTERNATIONAL MASONRY INSTITUTE


Significant prospects exist for the masonry systems in the growing sustainable retrofit market.
This seminar will concentrate on exterior and interior opportunities for all masonry systems -
brick, stone, block, tile, marble and terrazzo in retrofit projects. Specific focus will be given
to the measures that equate to improved performance related to energy efficiency, occupant thermal
comfort and indoor air environment. Guidelines to help with decision analysis of existing conditions will
be reviewed. This seminar will also examine and cross reference LEED concepts related to LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance.



This program meets AIA/CES criteria for Continuing Education. Attendees will receive a certificate for 2.5 Unit Hours Health, Safety & Welfare and Sustainable Design for attending this event.



There is no cost to attend this program; however registration is required.
