Annotated Bibliography

Conserving Concrete Heritage: An Annotated Bibliography, contains annotated entries identifying and describing specific resources in the conservation of concrete. It also promotes understanding of the current state of knowledge, to assist with identification of gaps in the existing literature.

The literature reviewed covers mass, reinforced, cast-in-place, post-tensioned pre-stressed, and precast concrete. The bibliography is organized in five chapters, which reflect the usual steps in the conservation process. These include: History and Development of Concrete; Concrete Deterioration and Damage; Historic Concrete Diagnostics, Monitoring, Nondestructive Testing, Investigation, and Assessment; Approaches to Conserving Historic Concrete; Conservation and Repair of Historic Concrete.

This bibliography is focused on English-language literature.
