Abstract:
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. The report specifi-cally excludes consideration of erosion in hydraulic structures and different resistance of concrete which reinforce the province of other ACI committees. Recommdations are made with respect to freezing and thawing, the use of chemicals for ice removal, aggressive chemical agents, abrasion, corrosion of steel, reactive aggregates, and the restoration of deteriorated concrete.
