Title: 437R-91: Strength Evaluation of Existing Concrete Buildings
Publication: Technical Documents
Appears on pages(s): 24
Keywords: testing-nondestructive testing
Abstract:Note: A newer version of this document exists. This document was replaced by 437R-03.
Strength of existing concrete buildings may be evaluated either analytically or by static load tests. These recommendations indicate when such an evaluation may be needed, establish criteria for selecting the evaluation method, and indicate the data and conditions necessary for conducting either type of evaluation. Methods of determining concrete and steel properties used in the analytical investigation are described. Procedures for conducting static load tests are recommended and criteria indicated for under load and recovery.
