Title: Rehabilitation of RC buildings from the late 19th - early 20th centuries - methodological discussion
Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: Reinforced concrete (RC) constructions from the late 19th - early 20th centuries present new challenges associatedto their conservation and repair. The specificities involved in the conservation/rehabilitation of historicaland heritage RC constructions require a special approach that must account for several restrictions. Suchrestrictions are related to the safeguarding of the heritages cultural value, significance and authenticity thathave to be weighed against safety and durability requirements, as well as against duration and budget constraintsof the intervention. For the case of late 19th - early 20th centuries RC constructions, such issues aremore complex since materials have evolved and construction techniques of that era cannot be replicated.Some issues that are raised when dealing with the conservation/rehabilitation of these constructions are addressedherein based on a case study. A methodological approach for the conservation of these constructionsis discussed, highlighting challenges that need to be addressed.
