Title: Practices for Evaluation of Concrete in
Existing Massive Structures for Service Conditions
Author(s): ACI Committee 207
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 47-61
Keywords: alkali-aggregate reactions; alkali-carbonate

Abstract:Current methods available for evaluating physical properties of concrete in existing structures to determine its capability of performing satisfactorily under service conditions are identified and discussed. Although general knowledge of the structural design criteria used for the principal structures of a project is essential to determine satisfactory procedures and locations for evaluation of the concrete physical properties, analysis for the purpose of determining structural capability is not within the scope of this report. The report recommends project design, operation and maintenance records, and in-service inspection data to be reviewed. Existing methods of making condition surveys and nondestructive tests are reviewed; destructive phenomena are identified; methods for evaluation of test and survey data are presented; and finally, preparation of the final report is discussed.
