Bibliographic information HMSO Books, P.O. Box 276, London SW8 5DT, United Kingdom, 1992. 54p. Illus. Price: GBP 15.00.
Abstract Report of an investigation to develop test methods which would allow the correct choice of material for repairing concrete structures in the marine and offshore environment. Four test methods were investigated and a range of materials was assessed. Results are reported in the form of a strength ranking of the repair materials produced by each test method and a comparison of this ranking with that produced in other test methods and with that resulting from a previous study. Consistency of results and ease of use of each test method are also assessed.
