Dear Sefi Friends ,

SURFSIDE  CONDO COLLAPSE IN FLORIDA ,  CASE  REPORT OUT .

Grand jury report on Surfside condo collapse calls for immediate action :
The grand jury has more than three dozen other recommendations - that condo boards upgrade their insurance coverage and that only licensed structural engineers be authorized to recertify aging buildings. There's precedent that suggests the recommendations will be taken seriously. A similar collapse in 1981 of a 50-year-old building in Miami led to the creation of the county's current 40-year recertification requirement. Some other jurisdictions in South Florida later followed suit. Miami-Dade County's Mayor Daniella Levine Cava welcomed the grand jury report and noted that it includes several proposals the county is already working on, including providing financial support to make repairs for those that need it. Notably, she didn't endorse the grand jury's top recommendation that recertifications be required for buildings that are just 15 years old.

We can use this  and other similar publication from ASCE or AISC :
ACI 437R-19
Guide to Strength Evaluation of Existing Concrete
Structures by American Concrete Institute, 05/01/2019
