Abstract

Civil engineering not only deals with the construction of various structures but also works for their maintenance and rehabilitation. The current era requires efficient and sustainable methods for any job and given that concrete is a material that is heavily relied upon at the present time in construction, therefore its sustainability through the rehabilitation and restoration of buildings is a must and very important. There are many techniques that can be followed in the rehabilitation and restoration of damaged concrete sections, i.e. exposed to cracks, corrosion or disintegration, as each process has its advantages and limitations, which requires the engineer to know the type of damage, the main cause of it and the best way to repair it. Therefore, this paper uses the descriptive methodology to review the latest rehabilitation and restoration techniques used in the treatment of concrete structure including, repointing, grouting, reinforced injection, polymeric materials permitted by fibers and reinforcement of concrete structures, overlays, jacketing, base isolation and stitching. The researcher concluded that these techniques are effective, but each has its determinants of use that must be taken into account before applying them.
