Abstract
RCC as a construction materials has come into utilization for the last one century. In India, Reinforced cement concrete has been utilized widely in the last 50-60 years. During this period, we have created enormous number of infrastructural resources in terms of bridges, buildings, sports stadium etc., which are lifeline for the civilized society. These have been made with gigantic speculation of resources. We can’t even think of recreating such resources out of limited national assets. It is, therefore, essential to maintain them in functional condition. The purpose of this project is to gain fundamental and practical understanding on concrete repairing and rehabilitation of the structures. The rapid urbanization has led to spreading of small RCC Buildings and has severely strained the resources in our country. Most recent constructions in the urban areas consist of poorly designed and constructed buildings. The older structures, even if constructed in compliance with relevant standards at that time, may not comply with the more stringent specifications of the latest standards. There is an urgent need to assess the seismic vulnerability of buildings in India, as an essential component of a comprehensive earthquake disaster risk management policy. The main purpose of repairs is to bring back the architectural shape of the building so that all services start working and the functioning of building is resumed quickly. Repair does not pretend to improve the structural strength of the building & can be very deceptive for meeting the strength requirements of the next earthquake. Rehabilitation is the restitution of the strength the building had before the damage occurred. This type of action must be undertaken when there is evidence that the structural damage can be attributed to exceptional phenomena that are not likely to happen again & that the original strength provides an adequate level of safety.
