Abstract
When assessing existing structures, the availability of adequate safety factors, calibrated with the most accurate models, and for established target reliability indexes, is of critical importance in order to take the right decision regarding the maintenance/repair/strengthening interventions. In the case of shear resistance in reinforced concrete (RC) structures, when using the current design codes provisions for new constructions in assessment results that, in many cases, existing structures m...
