Paper Title:
Structural Assessment of a 40 Year Old R.C. Building
  Abstract

A 6-story R.C. office building had a plan typical of a frame design, but a beam column design procedure was used. Working Stress Design method was used. Severe cracking ranging in size from 5 – 20 mm. A comprehensive study of the design drawings, site and laboratory testing was conducted on structural members to determine the cause and suggest the remedy.
