This edition will have color illustrations. Concrete is an extraordinarily versatile building material used for utilitarian, ornamental, and monumental structures since ancient times. Composed of a mixture of sand, gravel, crushed stone, or other coarse material, bound together with lime or cement, concrete undergoes a chemical reaction and hardens when water is added. Inserting reinforcement adds tensile strength to structural concrete elements. The use of reinforcement contributes significantly to the range and size of building and structure types that can be constructed with concrete. This Brief provides an overview of the history of concrete and its popularization in the United States, surveys the principal causes and modes of concrete deterioration, and outlines approaches to repair and protection that are appropriate to historic concrete. In the context of this Brief, historic concrete is considered to be concrete used in construction of structures of historical, architectural, or engineering interest, whether those structures are old or relatively new.

This Guide to Good Practice focuses on the techniques for the repair and strengthening of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures - covering the planning, design, implementation and monitoring of repair and strengthening projects. The book systematically details the various objectives involved, from attempting to ascertain the present state of a structure and establishing the repair and/or strenthening programme required, to determining the required target condition of the structure. Site supervision, quality control, re-checks and inspection controls are also considered. Owners, architects and engineers will find this guide an invaluable reference source which will help them to achieve a balance between the many aspects - economic, historical and technical - of a repair and strengthening project.
