The strength of existing concrete buildings and structures can
be evaluated analytically or in conjunction with a load test. The
recommendations in this report indicate when such an evaluation may be needed,
establish criteria for selecting the evaluation method, and indicate the
data and background information necessary for an evaluation. Methods of
determining material properties used in the analytical and load tests
investigation are described in detail. Analytical investigations should follow
the principles of strength design outlined in ACI 318. Working stress analysis
can supplement the analytical investigations by relating the actual state of
stress in structural components to the observed conditions. Procedures for
conducting static load tests and criteria indicated for deflection under
load and recovery are recommended. 28 pp.
