Abstract: This study give details about the rehab process of fire damaged reinforced concrete buildings in basically three categories; condition evaluation, decision making, rehabilitation & retrofitting. Evaluation process of damaged building is based on understanding of condition survey and condition assessment of fire damaged structure. Condition survey includes detailed visual inspection of building whereas condition assessment includes non-destructive testing of building (such as Rebound Hammer test, Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity test, Carbonation test, pH test, Half Cell Potential test etc.). Based on survey and assessment, various repair and retrofitting schemes have been suggested. RC members often need strengthening to raise their capacity to sustain the applied load. This research investigates the behavior of RC columns strengthened using RC jacket technique. A finite element model was stimulated in ANSYS WORKBENCH to study the performance of these columns with and without jacketing, which has been designed for static loading. Based on ansys simulation and Comparison of test result before and after jacketing, it can be said that structure is safe in static loading condition.
