Subject: Corrosion in reinforcing steel in slabs

Does anybody have a good reference (books, articles, catalogs, web sites, etc.) regarding some methods to repair elevated slabs whose rebars are severely corroded? Is there any commercial product or technique to restore the structural capacity of the slab, other than demolishing and re-building? Thanks in advance.
