Structural condition assessment of existing structures

9.00 am — 1.00 pm AEST, 17 — 20 June 2024


An Engineering Education Australia Virtual Workshop:

Evaluating the condition of an existing structure - a building, a dam, a bridge - is a vitally important exercise carried out by those in the engineering profession. But there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach for such a task. Different situations, conditions and materials - concrete, wood, metal, stone - require different techniques and testing procedures.

During this short course you’ll learn about material evaluation practices and procedures used for assessing the structural condition of existing structures, as well as many aspects of evaluating structures and structural material conditions. You'll cover:

  • Condition surveys,
  • planning a materials evaluation,
  • destructive and non-destructive testing (NDT),
  • limitations of NDT testing,
  • statistical evaluation of test data, and
  • the interpretation and use of test results will be discussed.

NDT techniques for establishing in-place material properties for concrete, masonry, wood and metals are a primary focus.

This course is run exclusively by The American Society of Civil Engineers with Engineering Education Australia.


Is this course for you?

This course is for you if you’re a building industry professional involved in evaluating concrete, masonry, wood and steel, destructive and non-destructive testing, inspecting, conducting structural condition assessments, repair, and the restoration of existing structures.

Professionals who will find the course particularly useful are engineers, architects, designers, developers and inspectors.
