Significant time is spent discussing the steel corrosion process, and modern methods of treatment and prevention, including the use of cathodic protection and corrosion inhibiting admixtures.
 
Repair Material Selection: Physical concrete repair material properties such as bond strength, linear shrinkage, and modulus of elasticity are discussed.
