Re: Reusing Foundations (was: SE Tests)

Bill -

You might hire a testing firm to proof test one or two of the
anchors in the most-damaged areas.  If you're satisfied with
the results, go forward.  If not, either replace the anchors
or rip out the foundation, depending on the undersirable behavior.

You could also have them cut a couple of cores and get compressive/rupture/modulus numbers to characterize the concrete.
That would give you a better idea of whether or not you have
significant fire damage.

Just my $0.02 from academic land.
