13th International Conference on Structural Analysis of Historical Constructions

The International Conference on Structural Analysis of Historical Constructions (SAHC) was held in Barcelona in 2021 to celebrate the 25th anniversary. Owing to the success of the past editions, the SAHC conference has become one of the finest exceptional recurrent events for scientific discussion, communication and professional networking. Engineers, architects and all professionals have been endowed with opportunities to share state-of-art knowledge and latest involvement in principles, technologies and practice for the research and conservation of monuments and historical structures.
In recent decades, the study and conservation of historical structures has shown remarkable technological and scientific advances. The restoration of heritage structures is performed on the basis of advanced non-destructive testing techniques, effectual monitoring systems, rigorous numerical analysis and comprehensive intervention schemes for restoration and strengthening. The conservation project must be undertaken by multidisciplinary teams composed of a wide range of specialists such as engineers, architects, historians, archaeologists, geophysicists and chemists. In addition, it is increasingly recognised that the study of historical structures requires an integrated approach as conservation practice faces problems at different scales (e.g. materials, structures and surroundings). For these reasons, the study of historical constructions still poses serious challenges that need to be confronted through comprehensive international scientific collaboration.
