Stivaros Publication: Special Publication Volume: Issue: Appears on pages(s): Keywords: Construction Failures, forensic education, formwork failures, punching shear failures, two-way slabs. Date: 5/1/ Abstract: Construction failures are not as rare as we wish them to : Pericles C. Stivaros. In its broad narrative of how the economy has failed to deliver for most Americans over much of the past three decades, Failure by Design also offers compelling graphical evidence on jobs, incomes, wages, and other measures of economic well-being most relevant to low- and middle-income tracks these trends carefully, giving a lesson in economic history that is readable yet.

Forensic engineering encompasses any engineering discipline that has the potential to be used for the technical investigation of failures. This volume presents papers from leading experts on how to learn from failures of constructed environments (from serviceability to catastophic), and on the implications for construction professionals. Failures do occur, some making headline news, and for a variety of reasons. As such information about failures is vital to make construction even safer. This book has been written by a number of distinguished international experts, and considers numerous facets of what has become termed by .

Failure of these components or equipment in the construction industry causes fatalities, property loss, degrading of the company image or loss of credibility, and many legal issues; therefore, it is of great concern to the construction industry.

The causes of failures can be categorized mainly as design deficiencies, material and manufacturing. Things can go wrong in scientific experiments sometimes, but when it comes to engineering, getting things wrong can be disastrous. #STEM #Engineering #Construction #Bridges #Failure #Learning.
