Highway pavements of portland cement concrete (PCC) type usually deteriorate due to distresses caused by a combination of traffic loads and weather conditions. The need for repair or rehabilitation depends on the type and level of distress. Repair and rehabilitation activities are carried out to extend the service life of the existing pavements. As total reconstruction is very expensive and time-consuming, rehabilitation is frequently considered to be a better alternative.
