Abstract: This paper describes a project involving the evaluation and structural repair of post-tensioned (PT) concrete garage decks. The suspended parking deck slabs exhibited numerous signs of distress, deterioration, and other conditions which led to questioning the structural strength of the slabs. The scope of work involved assessing the structural integrity and condition of the parking decks; identifying the causes of distress and deterioration; identifying remedial work necessary to repair existing distress and deterioration; and correcting structural and durability deficiencies of the parking deck slabs.
