Structural aspects of building conservation / Poul Beckmann and Robert Bowles - New York : CRC Press, 2004. - xxiii, 341 p. 23 cm - 2nd ed. .
This practical guide to structural assessment and repair of existing buildings is of great value for structural engineers, architects, planners, surveyors and others, working in all fields of building conservation. Taking a step-by-step approach, writing in plain English and using a minimum of mathematics, the authors discuss the structural appraisal of buildings constructed between the late eleventh and late twentieth century. The different approach to the assessment of load-carrying capacity of existing structures, as opposed to that for design of new-build, is explained. Methods for checking and testing structural adequacy for continued, or new use of buildings, are described.
