Abstract

This research project is focused on the evaluation and assessment of cracks appeared in the structural members of Klang Mosque. There are many diflerent kinds of cracks that sometimes are not serious and are probably due to shrinkage of concrete. Thus, in order to find out whether the cracks are because of serious causes such as settlement or design fault, the crack has to be identified and the causes must be studied in order to prevent building failure from likely to happen. In order to determine the possible causes of cracks this study is based in three levels. In the first level, site inspection was made and cracks were physically inspected and were mapped out on sketches, the information included the orientation location and size of cracks. In the second level of assessment structural analysis and design of cracked elements is made and it is compare with the actual design in order to determine whether the design short falls caused any cracks. Inthe third level some NDT (non-destructive test) is to be performed in order to assess the quality of work and properties of in-situ materials such as concrete.
