Concrete repair industry has been around for many years to support the world’s concrete infrastructure. Until recently, the repair industry has been an informal necessity of concrete structure owners. In the last 30 years, the repair industry has exploded in size and has become a multibillion dollar entity. Material systems, tools and equipment, engineering and contracting have become focused on the repair industry. However, failure rates of repairs remain unacceptably high. Therefore, repair industry has engaged itself to make necessary improvements. In this presentation repair industry action plans will be discussed including the draft of ACI Repair Code first edition content, latest repair (material) system improvements, and the latest research to answer the most difficult questions of repair system performance.
