ISO/FDIS 13822:2010: bases for design of structures - assessment of existing structures


This standard provides general requirements and procedures for the assessment of existing structures (buildings, bridges, industrial structures, etc.) based on the principles of structural reliability and consequences of failure. It is applicable to the assessment of any type of existing structure that was originally designed, analysed and specified based on accepted engineering principles and/or design rules, as well as structures constructed on the basis of good workmanship, historic experience and accepted professional practice.

The assessment can be initiated under the following circumstances: an anticipated change in use or extension of design working life; a reliability check (e.g. for earthquakes, increased traffic actions) as required by authorities, insurance companies, owners, etc.; structural deterioration due to time-dependent actions (e.g. corrosion, fatigue); structural damage by accidental actions.
