The central theme of this book is the role of physical testing in the development of design methods for new structural forms, new constructional materials and techniques, as well as new approaches to the maintenance, repair and operation of structures. For some twenty years, there has been a growing trend towards full-scale testing of structures and recently tests have been planned and carried out on some very large-scale structures. This work especially highlights the important link between the behaviour assumed in theory and that encountered in service. Structural Assessment presents the proceedings of the ninth seminar organized by the Institution of Structural Engineers' informal study group 'Model Analysis as a Design Tool'. This seminar provided a forum for discussion and exchange of information on the relevant experience gained from tests in laboratories or on site, and unites practising engineers and researchers from around the world.
