Published by: Research & Consultancies Directorate


This compilation includes 44 repair and rehabilitation technical papers published in The Indian Concrete Journal (ICJ) during the past decade. The papers are divided into three categories:

- General Topics in Repair and Rehabilitation;

- Materials, Techniques, and Specifications; and

- Case Studies

Most of the case studies by Indian engineers pertain to repair works carried out in India; nearly a third of the papers were contributed by experts from the western hemisphere. This international exchange of repair and rehabilitation information includes methods for minimizing cracking; surface preparation for patching, sealing, and coating concrete; repair of environmental concrete structures; and strengthening chemically deteriorated concrete structures. The information is useful to owners, engineers, architects, contractors, and materials manufacturers.
