Abstract:
The purpose of this paper is to outline some of the proposed changes to the Concrete Society Technical Report 15 which is the most comprehensive UK document dealing with assessment and repair of fire-damaged concrete structures. The publication is being updated to take into account changes of practice and methods of assessment since 1978. Repair techniques other than Gunite are to be included with particular comment in respect to resin repairs.
