Repair and rehabilitation of structures
Balamuralikrishnan R and Thirugnanasambandam S
Repair and rehabilitation mean restoring the damaged structures to make them fit for serviceability condition. Rehabilitation of structurally deteriorated RC structures is one of the major tasks for the construction industries worldwide. Use of properly selected repair materials can solve this tough task. Durable repair can be obtained only by matching the properties of the base concrete with those of the repair material intended for use. The selection of repair materials is based on their properties, dimensional stability, modulus of elasticity, permeability, chemical resistance, adhesion with parent concrete, coefficient of thermal expansion, easy to use. This study mainly focusing on different repair technology with different materials and testing’s.
