Retrofitting Design of Building Structures- for free

Building Structures

Prior to the 1980s, the key task of building structures renovation was the evaluation and reinforcement of older houses. Since the mid-1990s, however, the rapid development of the construction industry in China has led to more intensive structural evaluation and reinforcement of both old and new buildings.

In the real estate market in particular, the majority of homes are now privately owned, resulting in many disputes between housing developers and home buyers. Technical solutions to these problems require structural evaluation and reinforcement of buildings. In some cases, the results of building structures inspections and evaluations are becoming an increasingly important basis for government officials to mediate disputes in the real estate market.

About the Book

The book is based on the research results of the authors, who have practiced various structural retrofits, followed basic principles of structural analysis and design, and innovatively used various structural codes for the design, evaluation, and retrofit of building structures, making use of newly developed technologies worldwide.

The book begins with structural retrofit procedures and gradually introduces the significance of structural retrofits, inspection methods for structural materials and structural deformation and damage, retrofit design methods and construction requirements for various structural systems, and examples of structural retrofit design and construction. The introduction of various actual cases emphasizes not only conceptual design but also construction procedure design, and completes the design work of structural retrofit from both structural analysis and detailed construction measures.

This book can be used by professionals who understand the concept of structural design and have basic knowledge of structural materials, structural mechanics, and construction techniques. The book can also be used as a reference material for faculty and students of the Civil Engineering Research Institute.
