Part of: Innovation in Repair Techniques of Concrete Structures


Concrete, even though it may be the most fire-resistant of all the major building materials, can be damaged by fire. Seldom does even a major fire cause total destruction, however, most fire-damaged concrete is repairable. Over the years many methods and devices have been developed to help the engineer assess the extent of the damage and thus allow him to design the most cost-effective repair. These assessment methods and types of repair are the subject of this paper.
