I have a single story industrial building with 8 inch diameter schedule 20
columns 21 feet high. Many of the columns have been stuck by forklift
trucks and have varying degrees of damage. Does anyone know of any
criteria to evaluate how much damage is acceptable before repair is
required? For example, if the wall was dented reducing the diameter by 1/2
inch, would repair be required?
Thanks in advance.
