Bonded Cement-Based Material Overlays for the Repair, the by J.-L. Granju, B. Bissonnette, L. Courard (auth.), Benoît

By J.-L. Granju, B. Bissonnette, L. Courard (auth.), Benoît Bissonnette, Luc Courard, David W. Fowler, Jean-Louis Granju (eds.)

Among various methods that may be thought of for concrete rehabilitation, bonded overlays are usually the main low-cost replacement. the first goal of overlays is to increase the lifetime of the candidate constructions, both by way of restoring the standard and integrity of the skin and/or the re-establishing or enhancing the load-carrying skill. however, the sturdiness of bonded overlay structures nonetheless attracts issues within the technical group as a result of bond sustainability difficulties encountered in a couple of situations. at present, there's nonetheless no authorized layout technique or technique which can warrant the practitioner a winning final result of the fix. This State-of-Art document summarizes the findings with recognize to all facets occupied with the protecting process.
