For the assessment of concrete structures in the new fib Model Code 2020 (fib MC 2020), three categories are distinguished: (1) the residual capacity of existing structures without damage, (2) the residual capacity of structures suffering deterioration, and (3) the residual capacity of structures with noncompliant details. In the accompanying paper by Walraven and Dieteren in this volume, the backgrounds for this subdivision have been explained, and indications for the assessment of existing concrete structures in those categories have been given. In the actual paper, examples are given how to perform an assessment of concrete structures for the categories mentioned above. These examples have contributed to the formulations of the recommendations proposed for fib MC 2020.
