Abstract text:
The main principle in the rehabilitation of a building is induced by the qualitative and quantitative manifestation of several essential factors: components, typology and state of the construction, the economic role within the body, and restrictions, respectively opportunities provided by legislation (Stanca, 2016). Due to service, environment, physical, chemical or biological nature related conditions, constructions can damage quite early thus shortening their life. The analysis of the structural types allows knowing well the performances and their quality, data assimilation and their valorization in order to prevent degradation by interventions carried out in time and in relationship with the advances in science and technology. Diagnosis highlights irregularities in the structure, their significance and helps decide the need for structural interventions and the kind required. The evaluation of a correct intervention strategy is determined by the identification of individual differences of the structural and non-structural elements, of their mixed effect upon the seismic behavior mechanism and of the global defects regarding strength, deformability, redundancy and structural regularity (Stanca, 2019). The types of recommended types are destined to bring the structure back to the optimal parameters of operation, in agreement with the functional unit selected and the norms in force.
