Assessment, Evaluation, and Repair of Concrete, Steel, and Offshore Structures
Civil engineers must assure that buildings have long and durable lives, and therefore structural assessment and repair are routinely required and must be performed with the utmost accuracy and professionalism. Assessment, Evaluation, and Repair of Concrete, Steel, and Offshore Structures presents the typical causes of structural failure and their mechanisms, discusses the most up-to-date methods for evaluation and structural assessment, and explains the best project management strategies from the feasibility stage through operations and maintenance. Numerous types of structures are examined and are further illustrated by relevant case studies.
Examines the probability of several types of structural failure and includes reliability analysis.
Presents best practices for predicting the structural lifetime for both onshore and offshore structures and reviews the most advanced methods for repair.
Includes numerous practical case studies of structural failure and offers mitigation strategies depending of type of structure.
