On April 26 and 27, 1999 a workshop on Predicting the
Performance of Concrete Repair Materials was held at the
New England Conference Center in Durham, New Hampshire.
This workshop was a follow up of a previous workshop
held in 1995 at the National Institute of Standards and
Technology which dealt with research needs to minimize
cracking in concrete repair materials. The focus of the
1999 workshop was on test methods and modeling
techniques for predicting the performance of concrete
repairs. The two-day workshop included a half-day of
presentations to define the problems and review current
knowledge. The presentations were followed by working
group sessions on the following topics: (1) modeling
material performance; (2) repair design, specification,
and application; and (3) repair materials and systems.
The conclusions of the working groups were presented at
a plenary session on the second day. The workshop
concluded with recommendations for action. This report
provides summaries of the working group discussions and
concludes with the recommended actions.
