Title: Paradigm Shift Needed in the Repair Materials Data Sheets and Engineering Specifications
Author(s): Fred R. Goodwin
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 1-10
Keywords: data protocol; material properties; repair material; test methods
Abstract:This paper is based on a presentation in honor of Dov Kaminetzky. Repair material selection is a difficult process involving many factors and judgment calls. Compounding this situation is an absence of uniformity of published data of proprietary materials caused by the lack of recognized test methods to characterize materials used for concrete repair. This paper focuses on a recent development to address this is-sue through publication of consensus guidelines describing the testing and reporting of repair material in-formation.
