Underwater repair of concrete

ByA McLeish

The civil engineering industry has extensive experience of repair concrete structures above water. Many of the techniques used can, often with minor modifications, be used under water. On the other hand, the materials used may not perform well when used under water. Cementitious materials may be affected by washout of cement, whilst resin-based materials may intermix with water and fail to bond to the structure being repaired.
