Includes bibliographical references and index.
Theoretical aspects of structural interventions -- Structural theory in historic buildings -- Materials, building types and their failure -- Knowledge from structural assessment -- Strengthening and repair techniques -- Design interventions.
Structural interventions to historic buildings are however an integral part of the effort to select and update their design, historic and cultural values. Structural Design in Building Conservation deals with such design issues and shows how technical choices integrate with the planning and architectural outcomes in a conservation project. It brings together theory with current conservation technology, discussing the possibilities of structural details and strategies in architectural expression and is particularly directed at students of architectural conservation technology and practicing engineers and architects-- Source other than Library of Congress.
