This book is the result of the editor's efforts to understand why buildings fail. He has combined his experience investigating the causes of building failures with extensive research, in order to present detailed descriptions of the causes and identifying characteristics of a wide range of failure mechanisms. This book also includes an index of these various mechanisms, along with numerous case studies taken and expanded from his on-going magazine column on "Failures," and an annotated bibliography. A section on performing failure investigations puts the material into a practical context.
