Avoiding Structural Failures during Construction


March 12, 2008

David Peraza (New York) and Dennis McCann (Chicago) of the Buildings & Structures practice recently published the second part of the series of articles on “Avoiding Structural Failures during Construction” in the February 2008 edition of Structures Magazine. The article deals with failures of permanent structures and presents engineering principles and “lessons learned” that can be used by designers, owners and construction managers to minimize the probability of unfortunate events.
