Abstract This paper deals to create awareness amongst the civil engineers, residents and owners of building towards the health examination of existing concrete buildings called as Structural Audit. Stages in Carrying Out Structural Audit 3. Remember me on this computer. The code is comprised of both prescriptive and performance requirements. The concrete is widely used as construction material being inexpensive, easy for construction, applications and because of it high strength-cost ratio.

Structural Audit is an overall health and performance checkup of a building like a doctor examines a patient. Structural audit should highlight and investigate all critical areas and recommend immediate remedial and preventive measures.
