Abstract:
After reviewing briefly why cracks should be repaired, the authors discuss the feasibility of repair, how effective structural repair is accomplished, and limitations of repairs. Examples are given of typical applications of a method which consists in injecting an epoxy-resin adhesive into cracks to "weld" the concrete back together into monolithic form.
