    Abstract :

    ndia has witnessed phenomenal infrastructural development during last decade. The rate at which constructions are carried out has resulted in requirement of retrofitting or rehabilitation of many structures. Structures constructed in last around fifty years are also subjected to deterioration due to environmental effects and many other reasons. Techniques normally adopted for condition monitoring of structures are well-known to consultants, retrofitting or rehabilitation is done on assessment of condition of structures using one or many techniques. Adopting single technique, avoiding assessment of level of corrosion and improper interpretation of results may affect the rehabilitation measures or may lead to further deterioration. This paper is based on two case studies; it justifies the relevance of more condition assessment techniques for understanding the level of deterioration of concrete structures.
