Rehabilitation of a Distressed Single Storied Building Founded on Expansive Soil: A Case Study

Rehabilitation of a Distressed Single Storied Building Founded on Expansive Soil: A Case Study A single storied building was constructed on strip foundation system—on a subsoil, with high expansivity, without taking necessary precautions and it suffered extensive cracks and damages in roof slab, beams, columns and brick walls, subsidence/upheavals in floors etc. within 2/3 years of its construction and consequently it had to be abandoned. The study examines the reasons for the severe damages, cracks etc. and also suggests remediation by ground improvement and other necessary measures that were actually taken up, to rehabilitate the highly distressed and abandoned building within a reasonably short period of time—at a reasonable cost. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of The Institution of Engineers (India): Series A Springer Journals

Abstract

A single storied building was constructed on strip foundation system—on a subsoil, with high expansivity, without taking necessary precautions and it suffered extensive cracks and damages in roof slab, beams, columns and brick walls, subsidence/upheavals in floors etc. within 2/3 years of its construction and consequently it had to be abandoned. The study examines the reasons for the severe damages, cracks etc. and also suggests remediation by ground improvement and other necessary measures that were actually taken up, to rehabilitate the highly distressed and abandoned building within a reasonably short period of time—at a reasonable cost.
