The field of civil engineering has seen very revolutionary changes in the last two decades. In particular to construction industry, conventional cement concrete ingredients were slowly and safely replaced by new and more efficient advanced materials such as admixtures, which have opened a wide scope for research on their specific uses. Structures may need to be strengthened for different reasons among which a change in function, implementation of additional services or to repair the element of civil engineering structural damages and to Rehabilitate the same with different innovative strengthening techniques with materials like Polymers, Epoxy resin and conplast etc. Once the concrete has subjected to any kind of external force, the deterioration or decay of concrete will start. It is very useful for an engineer to have an idea about the residual strength of the structural elements which is helpful in the field of Repair and Rehabilitation. Improper structural design, use of poor quality materials, inadequate construction techniques adopted, weathering and environmental effects and natural calamities which leads to the initiation of damage in the civil engineering structures. Extensive research has been going on in the field of repair and rehabilitation. Hence attempt has been made to study the use of innovative materials such as low viscosity epoxy resins in the present investigation on repair and rehabilitation of flexural member. Rehabilitation and Retrofitting of concrete structures is to obtain a minimum understanding of the most important deterioration processes and their governing parameters. In certain cases such basic Knowledge is a precondition for the ability to take correct decision at the right time when seeking the required durability When a structure or a member is subjected permanently to some unforeseen stress exceeding its load bearing capacity, the structure may be termed unsafe with distress. A building or any part of it may be considered in distress, then it is not capable of sustaining the designed stress and it s early failure is anticipated In adequate or no maintenance in correct manner or bad use of building, poor workmanship during construction, Natural wear and tear, adoption of d
