CSA S413-94 – Parking Structures
The edition, for example, is more conservative about applications for fusion bonded epoxy coated reinforcing FBECR steel. The original standard, published inwas the first one written specifically for the construction of parking structures.
The study concluded that the poor performance of parking structures was a result of design and construction practices that fell short of those required to withstand the harsh Canadian environment. The heart of the standard is Table 1, which sets out acceptable minimum protection systems based on the requirement for protection against corrosion and leakage. Byhowever, evidence showed that some concrete parking decks reinforced with FBECR were experiencing severe cracking.
The cracks were typically wider than those formed by drying shrinkage within concrete reinforced with traditional steel.

Thinner epoxy coatings were susceptible to damage such as pinholes, while thicker coatings could compound the problems of splitting cracks caused by the reduced adhesion of concrete to the coating. That spares the concrete from cracking and de-lamination, but hides the corrosion of the coated rebar. There is currently no commercially viable and standardized method for monitoring the presence, extent and rate of this latter form of corrosion, said Jeffs.
The strructures also concentrated on the use of low permeability concrete and the use of corrosion inhibiting admixtures.

Depending on the type of parking structure, the edition now permits additional combinations of protection systems, concrete cover, corrosion inhibitors and Class C-XL concrete, which is highly durable. He cited the reduction in the number of parking structure restoration projects over the last decade structuress proof. Leaders of provincial construction associations agree has been a year of gr Canadian parking garages are notably exposed to road salts during winter months.
