Acknowledgment is due the original author of this guide, W. Glenn Smoak, for all his efforts to prepare the first edition. For this edition, many people were involved in conducting research and field work, which provided valuable information for this update, and their contributions and hard work are greatly appreciated. They include Kurt D. Mitchell, Richard Pepin, Gregg Day, Jim Bowen, Dr. Alexander Vaysburd, Dr. Benoit Bissonnette,in Joy, David (Warren) Starbuck, Dr. Matthew Klein, and John (Bret) Robertson. Dr. William F. Kepler obtained much of the funding to prepare this updated guide. Nancy Arthur worked extensively on reviewing and editing the guide specifications sections and was a great help making sure they said what I meant to say. Teri Manross deserves recognition for the numerous hours she put into reviewing, editing and formatting this Guide. The assistance of these and numerous others is gratefully acknowledged.

For decades, the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) has published both the Concrete Manual and the Standard Specifications for Repair of Concrete, M-47. 1 The subsequent revisions of these two documents (Bureau of Reclamation, 1975 and 1996), particularly chapter 7 of the Concrete Manual, have formed the basis for much of the concrete repair performed on Reclamation projects.
ining successful repairs to concrete. This second edition of the Guide for Concrete Repair updates and revises the original Guide and M-47 to include much of the information gathered over the last 20 years through field work, international workshops, and collaborative research projects. The Guide is now in two parts: Part I consists of chapters A. through E., with appendices. Part II contains the M-47, which is updated with new information and formatted to follow current Reclamation specification standards. Reclamation operates and maintains hydroelectric and water

resources structures in the Western United States. It serves as the fifth largest electric utility in the 17 Western States and the Nation’s largest wholesale water supplier, administering 348 reservoirs with a total storage capacity of 245 million acre-feet (1 acre-foot, or 325,851 gallons of water, supplies enough water for a family of four for 1 year). Reclamation provides 1 out of 5 Western farmers (140,000) with irrigation water for 10 million farmland acres that produce 60 percent of the Nation’s vegetables and 25 percent of its fruits and nuts.
