A fire damaged structure at the eastern part of Singapore was assessed. Some concrete spalling exposing corroded steel reinforcements were noted on the post tensioned concrete beam and reinforced concrete slab, raising a concern about the structural integrity of the overall floor. A comprehensive condition assessment was performed on the affected structural elements to determine the extent of the damage, which included some on-site destructive and non-destructive tests as well as some laboratory testing on the collected concrete and steel samples. Testing data revealed that the concrete was still in consistently good condition with the average residual compressive strength of 36.51MPa. Petrographic examinations suggested that the top 5mm of the concrete surface might be exposed to a temperature not more than 450o C. The steel reinforcement and post tension strands were found to be still in good condition as well. The findings of this assessment will then be used for further structural assessment to determine the most effective structural rehabilitation program.
