Abstract:The steel plate bonding technique appears to be a reliable strengthening and repair method to rehabilitate existing reinforced concrete structures. An overview of concrete deterioration is presented, in which the plate bonding technique as a repair and strengthening method for concrete structures is included. By presenting some repair projects conducted under the supervision of the author, the technique of gluing steel to concrete in different damage situations is illustrated. The possibilities, advantages, limits, and practical implementation aspects of the technique are discussed.
