Evaluation of structural safety of existing structures, based on actual material properties and geometry
This paper presents an overview of the structural assessment of existing structures in comparison to that of newly designed structures. The role of measuring geometrical data and testing the material properties is explained. The method provides objective criteria to judge the safety of existing structures.
