Structural Analysis Of Historical Construction, Vol 1 : Possibilities Of Numerical And Experimental Technique



The safety of historical constructions remains a true challenge for practitioners, in which the art of conservation must be balanced with true scientific and analytical knowledge. This three volume set is the proceedings of the conference on Structural Analysis of Historical Constructions V held at New Delhi on November 6 – 8, 2006. The objective of the series is to recommend conservation of historical buildings in seismic regions, based on a thorough understanding of their structure, construction features and materials. The high quality and up-to-date papers presented in these volumes discuss materials, techniques and methodology, evaluate techniques already introduced and suggest new techniques for conserving historical build.
