Opening with an exploration of the overarching philosophy of repair, this volume focuses on the historical use and development of concrete. It describes in detail the various types of deterioration processes to which concrete is prone: due to the nature of the material, due to design and use, and due to environmental conditions. It then explains how to survey and assess deterioration, how to maintain routinely concrete structures, how to clean them, and make patch repairs. The book examines electro-chemical methods and surface treatments, coatings and protective systems. Case studies are used to illustrate materials and treatments in use and to provide criteria for selection. The book also includes a glossary of terms and technical bibliography.
