Over the past few decades, there has been considerable interest in the development of renovation techniques and renovation activities mainly due to the deterioration and durability problems of concrete structures. Many new techniques and a wealth of knowledge in renovation engineering have been developed and promulgated at various conferences, in papers, in press reports, and in class notes. This book aims to summarize the state-of-the-art knowledge in this field and form a systematic tool for teaching and practicing renovation activities.
