Repair techniques

Various techniques are available for repairing concrete structures. The selection of the appropriate technique will depend on the cause of the initial damage (e.g. corrosion of the reinforcement, chemical attack, fire) and whether the repair is to be fully load-bearing or simply cosmetic. Repair techniques will not improve the strength or performance of the structure beyond its original (undamaged) condition.
