Determination of the structure' technical conditions for evaluating their future safe exploitation, design their strengthening, reconstruction or overhaul renovation.
Inspection of structures is a fundamental action that allows the obtaining of necessary data, identifying all the weaknesses of the supporting structure and analyzing options for further actions.
Application of the most efficient strengthening method requires the possession of all the input data. Exactly for this requirement, instrumental and visual technical inspection is performed, which allows the determination of:
The degree of deterioration of building structures
The actual concrete grade
The degree of rebar' corrosion
Deformation, deflection and displacement of structural elements
All the necessary geometric characteristics
Based on the gathered data, deficiencies are compiled, verification calculations are made, and a conclusion is formulated on the sufficiency or deficit of structural strength.
The next stage is to develop the project' documentation, taking in account the gathered data and the purpose of compensating the discovered deficit in structures strength or their load-bearing capacity. Providing an increase in the period between renovations, and the future safe exploitation of the facility.
