Originally published by the Danish Standards Institute, this guide to the EN 1504 standards addresses the principles, methods, and the choice of repair materials and systems for the rehabilitation of damaged concrete structures.
The standards not only provide a common set of values for the industry but also support the improvement of supply chain integration and specialist inputs in the early design stages of projects, where this can be most beneficial.
The book gives practical guidelines to the main principles of the EN 1504 standards along with worked examples. It also gives concise explanatory notes to the annexes, which will help any building and construction professional fulfill the requirements for repairing concrete.
