RR186 - Field studies of the effectiveness of concrete repairs
Phase 4 Report: Analysis of the effectiveness of concrete repairs and project findings
Presents the findings of Phase 4 of the project Field Studies of
the Effectiveness of Concrete Repairs. Site investigation of
repairs demonstrated that the majority of repairs were related to
corrosion of steel reinforcement. Repairs using proprietary repair
materials and systems with ages of the order of 10 years, had
largely been effective. Ineffective repairs occurred primarily
where the original cause(s) of deterioration had not been treated,
particularly the continued exposure to water, often containing
