This is a resource for graduate students studying deterioration resulting from reinforcement corrosion, alkali-aggregate reaction, and cyclic freezing and thawing. This book provides information on causes, implications, prevention, and control. It also covers concepts of non-destructive testing and evaluation, including a brief description of the methods available, their limitations, and interpretation of results obtained. The text also offers a better perspective of nondestructive testing methods and explores the emerging thought of including maintenance and repair of concrete structures in a comprehensive design framework. The book also includes case studies, examples, end-of-chapter problems, a solutions manual, and PowerPoint slides.
