DURABILITY PERFORMANCE OF REPAIRED REINFORCED CONCRETE BEAMS

In this investigation, the durability performance, namely, resistance to reinforcement corrosion of reinforced concrete beams repaired with ordinary cement mortar, polymer-based cementitious mortar, and ferrocement mortar was evaluated. The effect of temperature fluctuations, representative of the environmental conditions in the arid regions, on the corrosion-resisting characteristics of these repair materials was also evaluated. The performance of these materials was compared with unrepaired concrete beams. Results indicate superior performance by ordinary cement mortar compared to other materials. However, in the structural components subjected to thermal variations, ferrocement mortar was observed to be more beneficial.
