Note: A newer version of this document exists. This document was replaced by 201.2R-01.

This report presents recommendations for materials and methods to obtain concrete with maximum resistance to deterioration, to preserve concrete against deterioration, and to restore deteriorated concrete. A separate chapter is devoted to each of the main types of concrete deterioration: freezing and thawing, aggressive chemical exposure, abrasion, corrosion of steel and other materials embedded in concrete, chemical reactions of aggregate. Their mechanism is described and the requirements for materials, design, and construction procedures necessary to prevent damage to the concrete are given. Other chapters cover repair of concrete and use of coatings to enhance concrete durability. A selected bibliography is included with each chapter.
