1 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation In Low Strength Masonry Buildings Presentation From TSG

2 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Low Strength Masonry Building is Laid in Fired brick work in clay & mud mortar Random rubble ; Uncoursed, Undressed stone masonry in weak mortars made of cement- sand, lime-sand & clay-mud.

3 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Component Of Low Strength Masonry Building: Foundation Flooring Brick/ Stone Columns Brick Work Stone Masonry Wood Work Slab Slopping Wooden frame Roof Plaster

4 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Life Of Structure Depend Upon: A.Geography Of Location B.Building Material C.Technology D.Workmanship

5 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation A. Geography Of Location: Type of Strata Water Table Earth Quack, Wind, Cyclone, Flood, Snow Pollutant Land Slide Tree location w.r.t. building

6 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation B. Building Materials Cement Lime Fine Sand Coarse Sand Coarse Aggregate Quality of Water Bamboo/Wood Brick

7 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation C. Technology Architectural Design Structural Design Based On Load Bearing Wall Construction Methods Quality Practices Construction Management

8 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation D Workmanship Structural Work Finishing Work Water Proofing Work Development of Drainage (Internal & External) Maintenance Of Building

9 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Building Needs Repairs & Retrofitting Crack & Spalling In Structural Members Crack & Settlement In Flooring Crack & Spalling in Non Structural Members Leakage In Water Supply & Drainage System Redesigning existing structure for nature forces Changed functional requirements

10 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Crack & Spalling In Structural Members Cracks Occur Due To Settlement In Foundation Cracks Due To Earth Quack,Wind Crack Due To Overloading Of Structure Crack Due To Reduction in Load Carrying Capacity of Structure Due To Weathering Crack Due To Improper Design Of Structure Crack due to Poor connection Of Structural Members Resulted From Poor Workmanship

11 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Crack & Settlement In Flooring Due To Improper Plinth Filling In case of black cotton soil in foundation not replaced up to sufficient depth by Good Soil under plinth (For generating enough Counter weight upon black cotton soil) Water Table vary within the Plinth Sub base (this occur in frequent flooding area & near sea soar) Improper curing, Improper laying, Poor Quality of workmanship. Improper design for loading i.e. thickness & type of flooring.

12 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Crack & Spalling in Non Structural Members Crack In Plaster Crack In Finishing Crack In Water Proofing Work Vertical cracks in long boundary wall due to thermal movement Or Shrinkage. Crack Induced due to thermal changes, change in moisture content in building material, Chemical Reactions

13 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Leakage In Water Supply & Drainage It may result from structural cracks & settlement Improper selection of pipe thickness Improper selection of Supports & its spacing to Pipe Improper making Of joints Non Provision for contraction & expansion (Particularly when pipe is passing over different type of long structures) Non Testing of Pipe before & after laying Insufficient soil cover over pipe

14 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Redesigning existing structure to meet functional requirement as well as forces generated by Nature It is a comprehensive task & require planning which include following Information gathering. Field investigations including details of sub strata, foundation details Type of Existing structure & its members stability Design Data Collection Identification of components required to be strengthened, replaced. Cost Estimates (it is feasible up to 60% of new construction) Method or Procedure to be fallowed.

15 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Crack Investigation Location Profile (vertical, Horizontal, Diagonal) Crack Size throughout length (Width,Depth & length) Thin crack< 1mm Medium Crack >1 to 2 mm Wide Crack > 2 mm Crack may be non-uniform width. i.e. Tapper in width(narrow at one end & wider at other end. ) Static or Live cracks

16 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Cracks are static or live, is monitored & recorded by “Tell-Tale” method Crack in wall Quick setting mortar or Adhesive Crack in Glass strips Glass strips of 2 to 3 C.M. in width & 10 to 12 length Widening Of Crack Marking in Glass

17 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation These Crack occur around opening due to drying shrinkage & thermal movement in a building resulting weakening in the wall.

18 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Expansion & thickening of roots creating concentration of stress at joints & weak locations such as openings

19 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation The long horizontal crack resulted due to deflection of slab and lifting up of edge of the slab, combined with horizontal movement in the slab due to shrinkage.

20 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation This Cracks are due to pull exerted on the wall by the slab because of drying shrinkage and thermal contraction this pull results in bending of the wall which causes cracking at a weak section, that is, at the lintel or sill level of the window openings. Such cracks generally occurs when windows and room spans are very large. This cracks can be avoided by providing slip joints at slab supports on the walls.

21 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Construction Details Of Bearing Of R.C.C. Roof Slab Over a Masonry Wall Concrete Fillet Brick tiles or Cement mortar with chequer grove finish First Course Of parapet masonry is thicker than the wall By half Brick 12 mm wide groove in plaster Slip Joint(two or three layer of tarred paper are placed over plastered surface) 12 mm Gap,3/4 filled with Mastic Compound

22 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Thickness of plaster is to much high & silt content is also Very High

23 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Longer opening & less bearing & deteriorated lintel load capacity exposes diagonal crack which is widened towards corner wall edge.

24 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Vertical crack under window occur when wall have large window opening & little wall space on both side of opening. Difference in stress due to more stress in wall portion adjoining to window & less stressed portion under sill of window results in crack.

25 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Cantilever Chajja not having main bars on upper face

26 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation When two adjacent walls shake in different directions, their joint at corners comes under a lot of stress. This causes crack at the junction of two walls. In Normal conditions, cracks in this location comes when one of wall expand more than short wall.

27 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation When the long wall bends outward or inwards vertically in the middle of its length, this stretching causes tension and causes vertical cracks in the walls.

28 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Similarly when the walls bends outward or inwards horizontally in the middle of its height, this stretching causes tension and causes horizontal cracks in the walls. This happens at the base of gable wall.

29 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Many times the wall gets pulled from its corners. This results in to tearing of wall in diagonal direction. In the wall if there is a window or a door, then the diagonal crack occur at their corners.

30 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Flexural Tension Cracks At Lintel Level Due to Shrinkage & contraction of R.C.C. Slab

31 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation If the window is very large or if there are many doors and windows in a wall, then it tears even more easily in an earthquake.

32 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Many times the roof slides on top of the walls on which it is sitting on

33 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Structural Repairs Load Bearing Walls: PROCEDURE IN NEXT SLIDE CRACK IN BRICK PLACING OF RCC BLOCK AFTER CUTTING HOLE IN B.W.

34 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Repairing Of Crack Due To Structural Cause Replace all cracked bricks Use R.C.C. Stitching Block In Vertical Spacing In Every 5 th or 6 th Course ( 0.5 meter apart ). Stitching block Width=equal to wall width, Length = 1.5 to 2 bricks, Thick =1 or 2 bricks as per severity of cracks Mortar For Repairs 1:1:6 (1 Cement :1 lime: 6 sand)

35 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation load bearing walls(May be Brick or Stone) have inbuilt deficiency. Each Brick have different strength Thickness of Mortar Joints are not also uniform. Bricks are not perfectly laid horizontally & vertically Opening in walls Improper staggered joints Use of unwanted Brick bats 1. These resulted in cumulative effect & concentration of stress in particular section of wall is more than other section.

36 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation Corrective Measures For Load Bearing Wall Building Therefore Shifting of Window, Door,Inbuilt construction of Almirah should be carried out with due consideration to IS code 13828:1993 Proper Bearing to lintel over brick work to avoid diagonal cracks & it can be done in retrofitting work. It is advisable to keep window width as less as feasible while height can be increased with fixed glass pans on top portion as per slide 41.

80 Structure Repairs & Rehabilitation This Presentation was focused on Low Strength Masonry Buildings therefore for framed structures & rich cement mortar building,certain slides are in-valid. In next Presentation this balance portion will be highlighted. This Presentation was aiming to provide some technical input to site peoples so that we could point out any doubtful detailing in drawings to Structural/Architectural Designer. It is possible that features of Flood, Heavy Rain fall, Cyclone, earth quack may collide but We have to look priority of our geographical requirement. Thank You
