Buildings and structures, whether of reinforced concrete or masonry, are subjected to service life degradations and will one day reach a point when they become unfit for use as per the original designed purpose. During their life spans, buildings and structures come under constant attack from the weather, atmospheric gases, and other aggressive agents. Billions of dollars are spent on interventions to repair damages and to provide added protection in order to extend their service life.

The presentation reviews actual case studies with the aim of providing Engineers an overview of solutions successfully applied in various rehabilitation projects to meet differing needs and objectives.
