Abstract:
The various steps that must be taken in order to or restored are described. After the history of the structure has been researched, a condition survey of the structure and its foundations should be performed and supplemented with a geometry Laboratory testing of material samples then follow with structural analysis carried out to determine final structural adequacy and economical feasibility. A case history is described, The paper is concluded with recommendations for the establishment of an ACI guideline and additional research.
