Abstract: Aimed at estimating the residual life of existing buildings, in the present research, available
models to evaluate residual strength of existing structural elements are compared and critically
analysed, showing the effectiveness of the analytical models with respect to the empirical ones.
The assessment of the preservation state of existing buildings is then herein further extended
up to the global structural level, by proposing a new approach, which relates the behaviour of
deteriorated elements over time with its effect on the whole structure.
