Rehabilitation of a structure in general requires considerations of unique methods of inspection and repair. Since the structures have to remain in service while the repairs are done, the task of rehabilitation becomes especially challenging. The papers in this volume examine how special methods of inspection and repair were developed for bridges, viaduct, and marine structures to minimize the cost of rehabilitation while maintaining the service requirements of these structures.
