This book is a comprehensive guide to the common causes of structural damage. It examines the techniques for collecting evidence including desk study, visual inspection, distortion survey, testing and ground investigation as well as offering advice on managing liability. Before damage to a building can be remedied, the investigator has to discover the cause as well as predict the possible effects of the damage. This book provides an important study of the analytical skills necessary to achieve this. Practitioners in this field have no codes of practice or standards to fall back on – there are few formulae or theories for the deduction of structural problems – but there are methods for examining and analysing the damage which will help to produce the correct appraisal. Patrick Robson gives a clear assessment of the techniques involved and provides useful advice on dealing with the problems of diagnosis. He first outlines the principles of investigating safe buildings: how to collect and interpret evidence from observation and knowledge of the common causes of structural damage. This is followed by chapters covering techniques for collecting evidence: desk study, visual inspection, distortion survey, testing and ground investigation. Effective interpretation is of course vital and many practical examples are offered including complex cases where the investigator has inadequate evidence or damage is sudden. Appraisal can benefit from a period of monitoring, so methods for measuring movement and damage progression are also included. Finally the author explains investigators’ liability for their work and how to manage that liability. Contents: Introduction Principles: safe structures Causes of damage: superstructure Causes of damage: shrinkage and expansion Causes of damage: deterioration Causes of damage: ground movement The influences of foundations Desk study Visual inspection Distortion survey Testing Ground investigation Interpretation Masonry buildings Timber frame and earth walling Inadequate information Sudden damage Monitoring Managing liability Conclusion Glossary Further reading Index Printed Pages: 224 with numerous b/w illustrations.
