Failure, Distress and Repair of Concrete Structuresby Norbert Delatte
Synopses & Reviews
Understanding and recognizing failure mechanisms in concrete is a fundamental pre-requisite to determining the type of repair, or whether a repair is even feasible. This book provides a review of concrete deterioration and damage, looks at the problem of defects in concrete and discusses condition assessment and repair techniques.
The first half addresses failure mechanisms in concrete and covers topics including causes and mechanisms of deterioration in reinforced concrete, types of damage in concrete structures, types and causes of cracking, and condition assessment of concrete structures. The second half goes over the repair of concrete structures with coverage of themes such as standards and guidelines for repairing concrete structures, methods of crack repair, repair materials, bonded concrete overlays, repairing, and retrofitting concrete structures with fiber-reinforced polymers, patching deteriorated concrete structures and durability of repaired concrete.
