Assessment of Existing Concrete Buildings
Assessment of concrete strength in existing structures is a very fundamental task today, because the mechanical characteristics are strictly connected to seismic protection and performance estimation of the material. To this aim, several compression tests has been carried out on drilled core samples in conjunction with different NDT methods. The activity presented in the paper is still under development and is intended as a reference in the choice of the methods and correlations for structural survey of existing buildings.
