Proceedings pro003 : Joint International Workshop on Evaluation and Strengthening of Existing Masonry Structures


Title: Joint International Workshop on Evaluation and Strengthening of Existing Masonry Structures
Edited by L. Binda and C. Modena
ISBN: 2-912143-02-0
e-ISBN: 2351580141
Pages: 234
Publication date: 1995

RILEM TC 127-MS and CIB W23 Committees are the two main international scientific bodies which have made efforts in recent years to lay down recommendations and codes of practice on repair and strengthening of historic and monumental buildings. The reports and drafts produced by the two Committees are the results of internationally based expertise and knowledge.
The aims of the Workshop were the following:
1) to exchange information among their members about the work developed within the two Committees
2) to find topics of common interest and join the efforts avoiding possible overlapping,
3) to stimulate new work covering the interests of the Committees,
4) to help setting up new Committees in the field of investigation, diagnosis, repair, restoration and conservation of masonry structures. Some experts well-known in the field of masonry repair and strengthening were invited to attend the Workshop in order to give information and to stimulate the future work of the Committee members. They were also encouraged to suggest new areas and topics not covered by the drafts already in preparation by RILEM TC 127-MS and CIB W23.
