Repair and strengthening of damaged or vulnerable reinforced concrete structures is important in order to guarantee the safety of residents or users. Structural elements are important for withstanding loads, so finding the efficient repair and strengthening methods are necessary in terms of maintaining the safety of the structures. In this lecture, previous and the newest works on structural assessment for strengthening and rehabilitation techniques systems will be presented to show the principal concept of structural assessment for existing structure buildings. Also, advanced and conventional strengthening techniques for rehabilitation in the construction market will be presented to show the differences among them. Moreover, the advantages and disadvantages of each system will be presented in detail for the famous systems. A famous practical application of them will be presented in actual projects. Classification to the analytical, experimental, and parametric studies are presented by others to cover this area and make complete survey on structural assessment and strengthening techniques
