Structural Audit

Structural Audit is an overall health and performance checkup of a building like a doctor examines a patient. It ensures that the building and its premises are safe and have no risk. It analyses and suggests appropriate repairs and retrofitting measures required for the buildings to perform better in its service life. Structural audit is done by an experienced and licensed structural consultant.

Purpose of Structural Audit

 · To save human life and buildings

· To understand the condition of building

· To find critical areas to repair immediately

· To comply with statutory requirements

· To enhance life cycle of building by suggesting preventive and corrective measures like repairs and retrofitting.


Stages in carrying out Structural Audit

Visual Inspection

Non Destructive and Destructive Testing

 In addition to visual inspection, the real strength and quality of a concrete structure need to be checked with non-destructive tests. A number of non-destructive tests (NDT) for concrete members are available to determine present strength and quality of concrete. Some of these tests are very useful in assessment of damage to RCC structures subjected to corrosion, chemical attack, fire and due to other reasons.

These tests have been put under four categories depending on the purpose of test as under:

1. Concrete Strength

 · Rebound Hammer Test: To measure surface hardness of concrete

· Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Test: To assess homogeneity of concrete, to assess strength of concrete qualitatively, to determine structural integrity

· Core Sampling and Testing: To measure strength, permeability, density of concrete.

2. Chemical Attack

· Carbonation Test: To assess depth of carbonation and pH of concrete

· Chloride Test: To assess total water/acid soluble chloride contents

· Sulphate Test: To assess total water/water soluble sulphate contents of concrete

3. Corrosion Potential Assessment

· Cover Meter: To measure cover of reinforcement, diameter of reinforcement and spacing of reinforcement

· Half Cell Method: To assess probability of corrosion in the embedded steel

· Permeability Test: To assess permeability of concrete due to water and air.

4. Homogeneity and integrity Assessment

· Ultrasonic pulse velocity for determination of cracks and discontinuities

 Core Testing: This is direct method of assessing strength of concrete. In this method cylindrical core samples are taken from existing structures. The cores are visually inspected and tested in laboratory to check its compressive strength.
