Inspection of Load-Bearing Structures of Old Buildings before their Restoration or Reconstruction

V. G. Shtengel, B. A. Evdokimov

The actual state of bearing structures allowing after their restoration or repair to perceive necessary loadings, is decisive factor when developing the concept and technology of reconstruction works performance. Often detailed researches are complicated by conditions of ensuring access to a surface of the bearing elements, especially in the presence of valuable coverings. In article authors share some experience of fragmentary researches of bearing structures of the historical buildings in St. Petersburg conducted at the end of the past and at the beginning of it centuries with use of NDT methods. The given examples of old buildings surveying demonstrate the possibility of errors in estimating the actual characteristics of building materials and the state of structures which are connected with the insufficiency of the used independent NDT methods.
