Abstract: Bonded overlays constitute a common and versatile method for repair. Repair of concrete
structure results in formation of a two-component system, i.e. concrete overlay/concrete
substrate or repair materialhepaired concrete Such system must be compatible to cooperate
properly.
In 1992 during the International Colloquium on Materials Science and Restoration held in
Technical Academy of Esslingen the principles for repair material selection based on their
compatibility were formulated (L.Czarnecki, A.Vaysburd). The research in this filed has been
continued in Warsaw University of Technology and suitable compatibility models described
by number of inequalities have been developed. These inequalities have been incorporated
into the CCS software (Computer Compatibility System) developed on Warsaw University of
Technology in cooperation with National Institute of Standards and Technology in 1995. The
CCS presents graphically compatibility space for the given repair system. It allows to answer
the question: is the repair system compatible (with the substrate) or not? The problem arises
however, how to define the measure of compatibility degree.
