In this modern era, most of the buildings all the world are made up of RCC. The increasing incidents of fire in buildings have increased the importance of assessment; repairs and rehabilitation of such buildings as these buildings are very costly. This field needs special expertise in many areas viz. concrete technology, structural engineering, material testing, and repairs and maintenance etc. A continuous effort through research and development programmes all over the world is being made in this specialized field. This topic gives us immense pleasure as we deal with the real life problems in this research. In this research, we gain the knowledge which is being used as a strategy for the rehabilitation of fire damaged buildings and by conducting proper assessment procedures by non-destructive techniques. It is known that most of the fire damaged RCC are restorable. The mechanical properties of all common building materials decrease with the elevation of temperature. The behavior of a RCC in fire conditions is governed by properties of constituent materials, concrete and steel at high temperature. Both concrete and steel undergo considerable change in their strength, physical properties, and stiffness by the effects of heating. It is also seen that above 900°C some of these changes are not recoverable after subsequent cooling.
