Fire cause concrete surface cracking and crazing, chemical decomposition, and microcracking and spalling. These impacts can significantly change the properties of structural concrete, reducing strength and durability, and altering structural behavior. Assessment and evaluation of damages caused by fire ...

Inspection of underwater concrete structures is required for maintenance and repair works. Methods, types and objectives of underwater concrete structure inspection is discussed.
Types of failures in RCC buildings such as failure due to poor quality concrete, reinforcement corrosion, failure of foundations etc. with case studies are discussed.
Post concreting defects in structures are seen after the removal of formwork. Repair of these post-concreting defects and methods of repairs are discussed.
Physical load test is required to determine the serviceability of the structure. Load arrangements, load intensity, loading criteria, instrumentation are explained.
Inspection of concrete structures in necessary to assess the building of damages, its strength, rehabilitation strategies, repair methods etc. to keep the structure safe.
STRUCTURAL EVALUATION PROCESS This procedure is applicable for conventionally reinforced cast-in-place concrete, precast-prestressed concrete and post-tensioned cast-in-place concrete. The evaluation of an existing concrete building is usually performed for stability, strength, safety and future expected life. Evaluation of a ...
The fatigue strength of riveted members is relatively insensitive to the rivet pattern or type of detail (cover plate details, longitudinal splice plates, and angles or shear-splice details). A major advantage of riveted (or bolted) members is that they ...
