Course Description
The subject of this course is to give structural engineering concepts on preserving monuments and historical constructions. The course will provide interdisciplinary information comprising engineering-oriented issues (introducing load-bearing systems, structural analysis, seismic behavior, etc.) along with more general philosophical concepts (history of construction and restoration, principles and methodology of conservation, building rehabilitation, etc.). The course will also introduce the very recent advances in research and development on repair and strengthening of historical constructions with various real-life examples.
