Stages in Carrying Out Structural Audit 3. It ensures that the building and its premises are safe and have no risk.

ACI Committee on Apple Books

The need of structural audit is for maintenance and repairs of existing structures whose life has exceeded the age of 30 years to avoid any mishaps 562-1 save valuable human life. Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link.

Appropriate actions should then be implemented to improve the performance of structures and restore the desired function of structures. It also helps in delivering a strong building structure with cost effective solutions and appropriate maintenance program. The purpose ac strengthening is to increase the load-carrying capacity or stability of a structure with respect to its previous condition. If, further use of such deteriorated structure is continued it may endanger the lives of occupants and surrounding habitation.

Post Structural Audit 4. Help Center Find new research papers in: Some of these tests are very useful in assessment of damage to RCC structures subjected to corrosion, chemical attack, fire and due to other reasons.

There are many buildings during this period and earlier have reduced strength in due course of time because of structural deficiency, material deterioration, unexpected over loadings or physical damage.

The structural audit must be carried out following auditing norms, methods of non-destructive testing and code provisions. This paper deals with study of different parameter of structural audit including visual inspection, non-destructive testing, core sampling and testing. The concrete is widely used as construction material being inexpensive, easy for construction, applications and because of it high strength-cost ratio.

The seismic evaluation of existing buildings compares their capacity against earthquake demand at specific site and concerns the potential earthquake-caused risk to building systems and elements that are closely related to human life safety.

The former refers to the restoration of lost sectional or monolithic properties of damaged members, while the later refers to the restoration of structural surfaces to a satisfactory operational standard. This code provides the minimum requirements for the evaluation, repair, rehabilitation, and strengthening of existing concrete buildings and, where applicable, in nonbuilding structures.


In India, from onwards the infrastructure industry witnessed stepping up of public investment and growth in infrastructure industry which results in construction of new multistory concrete apartments which are now in the age of thirty plus years.

The periodical structural auditing and diagnosis for health of existing buildings is thus utmost important for finding the present serviceability and structural viability of structures.

Structural Audit is an overall health and performance checkup of a building like a doctor examines a patient. To measure strength, permeability, density of strength of concrete qualitatively, to determine structural integrity concrete. More than ever, the construction industry is concerned with improving the social, economic and environmental parameters of sustainability. Structural audit should highlight and investigate all critical areas and recommend immediate remedial and preventive measures.

Structural audit is done by an experienced and licensed structural consultant.

ACI Committee 562

Commentary is provided 652-12 both the prescriptive and performance requirements and is intended to provide guidance to the licensed design professional and referenced sources for additional information the material presented in the code provisions. It is mandatory and advisable cai carry out the periodical structural audit of the buildings by professional experts and act immediately through recommendations provided in audit report.

Skip to main content. From this point of view, repair may be divided into structural repair and serviceability repair.

To measure surface hardness of concrete 3. Click 652-12 to sign up. A newer version of this document exists. Structural Audit of Buildings. Conclusion The structural diagnosis is vast, important and highly responsible job which is connected with lives of human beings.

Remember me on this computer. The code is comprised of both prescriptive and performance requirements. It should cover the structural analysis of existing frame and find critical elements for all types of loadings.

Strengthening of structural members can be achieved by replacing poor quality or defective material with 5662-12 quality material, by attaching additional load-bearing material, such as high quality concrete, additional steel, thin steel plates, various types of fiber reinforced polymer sheets, and so on, and by ac redistribution of the load such as by adding a steel supporting system.


International Concrete Abstracts Portal

To assess depth of carbonation and pH of concrete 3. International Journal of Civil Engineering Research. If further use of such deteriorated structure is continued it may endanger the lives of the occupants and surrounding habitation. To measure cover of reinforcement, diameter of reinforcement 3. International Concrete Abstracts Portal. Abstract This paper deals to create awareness amongst the civil engineers, 526-12 and owners of building towards the health examination of existing concrete buildings called as Structural Audit.

According to ACI R, to repair is to replace or correct deteriorated, damaged, or faulty materials, components, or elements of a structural system. The International Concrete Abstracts Portal is an ACI led collaboration with leading technical organizations from within the international concrete industry and offers the most comprehensive collection of published concrete abstracts.

To act more responsible and preemptive towards the dilapidated buildings, the municipal corporation must issue notices to the buildings and co-operative societies which are more than 30 years old to carry out mandatory structural audit and submit the audit report. Introduction In Aic there are many old buildings which have reduced strength in due course of time.

The code and commentary is intended for use by individuals who are competent to evaluate the significance, limitations of its content and recommendations, 5622-12 who will accept responsibility for the application of the material it contains.

These tests have been put under four categories depending on the purpose of test as under: The cores are visually inspected and tested in laboratory to check its compressive strength. A number of non-destructive tests NDT for concrete members are available to determine present strength and quality of concrete.

In this method cylindrical core samples are taken from existing structures. The effective implementation of auditing enhances the life span of structure, prevents deterioration of building leading to sustainability.

It analyses and suggests appropriate repairs and retrofitting measures required for the buildings to perform better in its service life. The success of repairs and restoration is always based on thorough knowledge, correct diagnosis and in-depth studies of problems in building, proper repair practices and finally socio-economic considerations.
