Corrosion of deformed bar reinforcement and post tensioned, unbonded tendons of an eight story parking structure caused concern for the integrity of the garage’s slab system. A condition survey was conducted to locate areas within the garage with the most advanced deterioration. Priority was placed on repairing these areas. Several alternative repair schemes were considered; clear height limitations within the garage made the use of thin overlay materials desirable.
