Abstract:
In cases where a structural evaluation is to be performed on an existing building, knowledge of member sizes, reinforcing details, and material properties is generally required. Relying on as-built records of design and construction can simplify the determination of the load capacity of a structure and its component members; however, such records are often unavailable. This presentation examines how an engineering investigation involving visual inspection, material testing, and NDT provides a basis for rational calculations to determine the structural capacity when as-built drawings are unavailable.
