Abstract:Damages on RC structures cause awareness to the public on the safety and serviceability of those structures. Moreover, structure durability also decreases when no attention is given to correct the damages. In this study, damages in terms of cracks were observed on the concrete surface. To ensure the safety of this structure, visual inspection, non-destructive tests (NDTs) were conducted to gather necessary structural information. Inspection results were concluded and used to analyze the cause of damage and performances of the structure. Moreover, progress of damage conditions had been monitored before a suitable maintenance planning program was recommended accordingly.
