The Second International Conference on Concrete Repair, Rehabilitation and Retrofitting (ICCRRR 2005) was held in Cape Town, South Africa, from 24-26 November 2008. The Conference followed the very successful First International Conference, also in Cape Town in 2005, and continued as a collaborative venture by researchers from the South African Research Programme in Concrete Materials (based at the Universities of Cape Town and The Witwatersrand) and The Construction Materials Sections at Leipzig University and MFPA Leipzig in Germany. The background, in industry and the state of national infrastructures, continues to be highly challenging and demanding. The facts remain that much of our concrete infrastructure deteriorates at unacceptable rates, that we need appropriate tools and techniques to undertake the vast task of sound repair, maintenance and rehabilitation of such infrastructure, and that all this must be undertaken with due cognisance of the limited budgets available for such work. New ways need to be found to extend the useful life of concrete structures cost-effectively. Confidence in concrete as a viable construction material into the 21st century needs to be retained and sustained, particularly considering the environmental challenges that the industry and society now face. The conference proceedings contain papers, presented at the conference, and classified into a total of 12 sub themes which can be grouped under the three main themes of (i) Concrete durability aspects, (ii) Condition assessment of concrete structures, and (iii) Concrete repair, rehabilitation and retrofitting. The major interests in terms of submissions exists in the fields of innovative materials for durable concrete construction, integrated service life modelling of reinforced concrete structures, NDE/NDT and measurement techniques, repair methods and materials, and structural strengthening and retrofitting techniques. The large number of high-quality papers presented and the wide range of relevant topics covered confirm that these proceedings will be a valued reference for many working in the important fields of concrete durability and repair, and that they will form a suitable base for discussion and provide suggestions for future development and research. Set of book of abstracts (476 pp) and a searchable full paper CD-ROM (1396 pp).

The field of Concrete Repair and Rehabilitation is gaining importance in view of its positive impacts in terms of socio-economic benefits and environmental sustainability. Due to growing importance of this field, many engineering colleges have included the subject of concrete repair and rehabilitation in the senior undergraduate and postgraduate course curriculums of civil engineering. This book is an earnest attempt to help students of civil engineering in enhancing their understanding and awareness about critical elements of repair and rehabilitation of concrete structure. The content is organised in such a way that it fulfils the academic needs of the students. This text attempts to dovetail all important aspects such as causes of distress, assessment and evaluation of deterioration, techniques for repair and rehabilitation along with selection of repair and rehabilitation materials and other important aspects related to preventive maintenance and rehabilitation/structural safety measures. The primary objective of this textbook is to guide students to: • Understand the underlying causes and types of deterioration in concrete structure • Learn about the field and laboratory testing methods available to evaluate the level of deterioration. • Get well acquainted with options of repair materials and techniques available to address different types of distress in concrete structure. • Grasp the knowledge of available techniques and their application for strengthening existing structural systems.

The First International Conference on Concrete Repair, Rehabilitation and Retrofitting (ICCRRR 2005) was held in Cape Town, South Africa, from 21-23 November 2005. The conference was a collaborative venture by researchers from the South African Research Programme in Concrete Materials (based at the Universities of Cape Town and The Witwatersrand) and The Construction Materials Section at Leipzig University in Germany. The conference has come at an opportune moment for concrete construction worldwide and sought to focus on an increasingly important aspect in modern infrastructure provision and retention: that of appropriately repairing, maintaining, rehabilitating, and if necessary retrofitting existing infrastructure with a view to extending its life and maximising its economic return. The conference Proceedings contain papers, presented at the conference, and classified into a total of 15 sub themes which can be grouped under the four main themes of (i) Concrete durability aspects, (ii) Condition assessment of concrete structures, (iii) Concrete repair, rehabilitation and retrofitting, and (iv) Performance monitoring and health assessment. The major interest in terms of submissions exists in the fields of concrete durability aspects in connection with material compositions, NDE/NDT and measurement techniques, repair methods and materials, and structural strengthening and retrofitting techniques. The large number of high-quality papers presented and the wide range of relevant topics covered confirm that these Proceedings will be a valued reference for many working in the important fields of concrete durability and repair and that they form a suitable base for discussion and provide suggestions for future development and research.

""There are well over 4000 multi-storey car parks in the UK and many have a history of early deterioration, structural defects and safety shortcomings due to poor design and construction and low standards of maintenance and repair."" Adrian Long, Past President, Institution of Civil Engineers The majority of multi-storey car parks in the UK are constructed of reinforced concrete and have been designed to normal building standards. However, car park structures are subjected to more severe environments than buildings generally and many have been subject to low standards of maintenance and repair. As a result many have suffered from early deterioration, structural defects and safety shortcomings, requiring closures for costly repairs and/or rehabilitation. This guide - prepared by the ICE's National Steering Committee for the Inspection of Multi-storey Car Parks - have been specifically written to address the important implications of the past performance of car park structures and provides recommendations for good practice for car park owners and operators and their engineering advisers. Split into two parts and illustrated in colour throughout, this guide presents practical recommendations that translate into everyday good practice. Part 1 is aimed at the owners and operators of car park structures and details the recommended principles and approaches to good management. In particular, the development and implementation of a Life-care Plan for each car park structure is recommended. Part 2 of the guide is aimed at the professional engineering adviser and offers more detailed, technical information on the Life-care process for a car park structure, i.e. inspection, appraisal, maintenance, repair, rehabilitation and replacement. The guide also includes four appendices, which contain reference material on design, construction and performance; defects, cracking and deterioration, testing and monitoring; and safety risk and structural appraisal. This guide will help both owners and operators of multi-storey car parks and their professional advisers to provide, through implementation of Life-care Plans, safe car park structures and cost-effective inspection and maintenance with minimum disruption.
