Abstract

The project work is focused on feasibility study for construction of an additional floor over the existing reinforced concrete administration building of an educational institution. The prime importance in the work is given to the understanding of structural assessment process and its interpretation to know the actual strength, intensity of damage occurred, amount and place of restoration needed. In order to ascertain the structural soundness of the existing building, for the proposed additional floor non - destructive evaluation was carried out. For this purpose, Ultra sonic pulse velocity test, rebound hammer test, carbonation test, half -cell electrical potential test, cover meter studies and chemical analysis on concrete samples were performed. Based on visual inspection & test results some remedies are recommended for repairing the distressed and damaged components of the building.
