Re: honeycomb

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
In my opinion, depending upon the depth and severity of the honeycombing,
choices are limited to patch, inject, or, cut out and replace. Patching
would only be used in circumstances for which strength and durability are
not issues. In all cases I would suggest first checking proposed repair
materials for compatibility of modulus, shrinkage (while the repair material
cures), thermal expansion where applicable and reinforcement protection
where applicable with the parent concrete. If honeycombing is sufficiently
pervasive the only solution is to replace the column, which would be a
decision based on relative costs of repair/replace, versus technical
considerations.
