This document provides general guidance for determining appropriate acceptance criteria for a prepared surface to receive a protection system. There are many techniques for preparation of a surface prior to installation of a protection system, and no single method is ideal for all situations. This guide discusses various preparation methods that can be used to achieve the intended surface condition.

Fabric-reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) and steel-reinforced grout (SRG) systems for rehabilitation and strengthening concrete structures is an alternative to traditional techniques such as fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs), steel plate bonding, section enlargement, and external post-tensioning. An FRCM/SRG is a composite material consisting of one or more layers of inorganic matrix reinforced with dry fibers in the form of open mesh or fabric. The inorganic matrixes are typically cement-based, lime-based, or geopolymer. When adhered to concrete structural members, they form an FRCM/SRG system that acts as supplemental, externally bonded reinforcement. This guide addresses the history and use of FRCM and SRG systems rehabilitation and strengthening, their unique material properties, and recommendations on their design, construction, and inspection. Guidelines are based on experimental research, analytical work, and field applications.

The worldwide trend in construction is toward mechanization and automation. This trend has led to continued rapid progress of mechanized tunneling. Advantages over conventional tunnel construction methods include, but are not limited to, occupational health and safety, faster advance rates, and reducing construction labor requirements. Mechanized tunneling in soft ground using tunnel boring machines is often associated with installing precast concrete segmental lining. However, very little industry-wide guidance has been provided by practice and code organizations. This document provides guidelines for precast concrete tunnel segments, including the most recent developments and practical experience, in addition to information on all aspects of design and construction. These guidelines are based on the knowledge and the experience gained on numerous precast tunnel projects in the United States, and available national and international guidelines often used as industry references.

Architectural precast concrete is a subcategory of concrete construction that involves the same basic entities as other concrete construction, but is cast in a plant and has a more decorative appeal by using color, texture, distinguished surface finishes, or all of these. This document outlines the responsibilities for various parties of the design/construction team for architectural precast concrete projects and does not necessarily apply to concrete or precast concrete in general.
