Abstract: The reliability of structures in the reconstruction of buildings depends on quality control methods that can be destructive and non-destructive. Directions for improving the accuracy of methods for assessing masonry as a complete construction system are proposed in the paper. The factors to be taken into account when assessing the bearing capacity of the operating buildings have been stated. Margin of errors of a number of parameters using different methods of strength assessment have been determined.
Keywords: Reliability of Building Structures, Reconstruction, Restoration, Masonry, Methods of Strength Assessment, Compressive Strength.

Scope of the Article: Structural Reliability Analysis
