Raouf A. Ibrahim's Handbook of Structural Life Assessment PDF

By Raouf A. Ibrahim

This vital, self-contained reference bargains with structural lifestyles overview (SLA) and structural wellbeing and fitness tracking (SHM) in a mixed shape. SLA periodically evaluates the country and of a structural method and offers innovations for attainable upkeep activities or the top of structural carrier lifestyles. it's a different box and depends upon the theories of fracture mechanics, fatigue harm technique, and reliability conception. For universal constructions, their existence evaluate is not just ruled via the speculation of fracture mechanics and fatigue harm procedure, yet by means of different components akin to corrosion, grounding, and unexpected collision. however, SHM offers with the detection, prediction, and placement of crack improvement on-line. either SLA and SHM are mixed in a unified and coherent treatment.

Download e-book for kindle: Statische Beurteilung historischer Tragwerke: Band 2 - by Stefan Holzer

By Stefan Holzer

Die Aufgabe der Beurteilung existierender Tragwerke stellt sich bei Umbauten oder Umnutzungen, und zunehmend auch bei der Einschätzung der Standsicherheit von öffentlich zugänglichen Bauwerken. Bei realistischer Beurteilung können Tragreserven durch Reparaturmaßnahmen aktiviert und somit die Eingriffe
auf ein Mindestmaß begrenzt werden, was once besonders unter denkmalpflegerischen Randbedingungen erwünscht ist.

In Band 2 werden die handwerklichen Holztragwerke Mitteleuropas untersucht. Das Buch führt kurz in den Holzwerkstoff ein. Die grundsätzliche Vorgehensweise bei der Bestandsuntersuchung wird dargelegt, auch im Hinblick auf Identifikation und Datierung historischer Schäden und Reparaturen. Handnahe Untersuchungen und zerstörungsfreie Prüfungen werden erläutert, ebenso wie die Grundlagen der Standsicherheitsbeurteilung von Tragwerken mit langer Standzeit. Den Hauptteil des Werkes nimmt die detaillierte Diskussion der Konstruktionssysteme und Anschlüsse historischer Decken- und Dachtragwerke ein; das Tragverhalten wird an überaus zahlreichen Berechnungsbeispielen erläutert.
