Research projects performed at the University of Liege, Laval University and the Warsaw University of Technology have pointed out the importance of taking care about the surface roughness of concrete substrate with regards to the adhesion of repair materials. This paper wants to make a State-of-Art on this specific problem: surfometry methods, interface analysis, adhesion measurements, … etc are presented, interpreted and compared. Surfology, which is a more wide concept, contributes to understand what will make the contact effective or not, and allow interactions of variable intensities between the materials. Different scales of observation—micro to macro are needed to exactly represent what happens when materials are put into contact.
