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.
