Eco-efficient Repair and Rehabilitation of Concrete Infrastructures provides an updated state of the art review on eco-efficient repair and rehabilitation of concrete infrastructure. The first section focuses on deterioration assessment methods, and includes chapters on stress wave assessment, ground-penetrating radar, monitoring of corrosion, SHM using acoustic emission and optical fiber sensors. Section two looks at the development and application of several new innovative repair and rehabilitation materials. These include geopolymer concrete, sulfoaluminate cement-based concrete, engineered cementitious composites (ECC) based concrete, bacteria-based concrete, concrete with encapsulated polyurethane, concrete with super absorbent polymer (SAPs), concrete with self-sensing properties and bio-based fiber reinforced polymers for structural rehabilitation. The final section focuses on crucial design aspects such as quality control, including life cycle and cost analysis with several related case studies on repair and rehabilitation.
The book will be an essential reference resource for materials scientists, civil and structural engineers, architects, structural designers, and contractors working in the construction industry.
