The goal of Commission 3 (COM3) is to define appropriate and reliable procedures to establish the safety of existing structures and any associated requirements for interventions to extend the safe operation or working life of such structures.
COM3 will deliver this through the preparation of comprehensive guidance for the assessment of existing concrete structures, providing complementary recommendations to those given in the fib Model Code for Concrete Structures 2010 (fib MC2010), which was prepared primarily for the design of new concrete structures. To that end, COM3 will produce documents supporting the development of fib Model Code 2020 (fib MC2020) to be used for the assessment of the present structural performance and the prediction and evaluation of future structural performance of existing concrete structures with or without damage and/or revised operational requirements, together with any associated interventions required to extend their service life. It is envisaged that the documents to be produced could include technical reports, reviews of the state-of-the-art and technical history/evolution, technical guidelines, specifications and recommendations.
