As expected, most of the things that can go wrong with concrete are covered in the book, including design, detailing and construction errors and combinations thereof.

Nevertheless, as human error appears to be present in most cases where failure is caused to occur, lessons learned from human error could have been analysed : Costas Georgopoulos. Lessons from failures of concrete structures. Detroit, Mich: American Concrete Institute.

This book is a personal selection of incidents that have occurred related to reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Not all have led to failures and some of the mistakes were discovered at the design stage. Each incident required some form of remedial action to ensure safety of the structure.

The book. Lessons from failures of concrete structures. Detroit, American Concrete Institute [] (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Jacob Feld. Every practicing structural engineer needs to study past failures in order to avoid future failures, and this book is among the many good resources for that purpose.

Niall MacAlevey presents 50 failure case studies involving a variety of steel and concrete structures, mostly buildings and bridges from around the world/5(5). Two primary types of failure – shear failure of joints in the special concrete frame and shear failure and compressive crushing of gravity columns occurred at one of the two structure’s second story.

This resulted in partial collapse of the structure, and eventual demolition of both structures. Some lessons are only learned from mistakes but, its much cheaper to learn from someone elses mistakes than to have to do so from your own.

The advantages are clear: high speed construction, no need of formwork, less heavy labour and most of all a great increase of freedom to design. This technique allows for mass. A number of failure case studies have been developed for use in courses teaching reinforced concrete design, as outlined in the book “Beyond Failure.” These include failures in the construction process and in formwork, such as the Willow Island Cooling Tower.

Steel is largely governed by ductile failure. Structural failures of concrete structures often imply large and unwanted deformations, severe honeycombing and cracking with spalling, relative displacement of supports and ultimate : Fasi Ur Rahman.It also discusses condition assessment and repair techniques.
