Global Risks in Structural Engineering

The Finnish Group of IABSE together with the Finnish Association of Civil Engineers (RIL) arranged the two-day event ‘Global Risks in Structural Engineering’ from March 10-11, 2016. The aim of the event was to discuss emerging steps needed to ensure safe and functional structures in today’s environment and business culture, and which will set up the theme for the planned 2017 Workshop in Finland. The keynote programme consisted of nine presentations from invited experts from around the world. Panel discussions were run at the end of the both days. The event venue was split between two cities and two countries; Helsinki in Finland and Barcelona in Spain. Read the report by Risto Kivilouma, Chair of the Finnish Group here..

The August 2017 issue of Structural Engineering International (SEI) will present a special series of articles on ‘Forensic (structural) engineering’ and general reports on structural engineering.  Forensic (structural) engineering is the professional practice of investigating and determining the causes of (structural) failures of buildings, bridges and other constructed facilities; identifying the responsible party(ies) for the failure; rendering opinions; providing technical support in the resolution of claims; and giving expert testimony in judicial proceedings, if called upon. This special series will feature case studies of the causes and investigations of, and lessons learned and used from, structural failures during construction and in service.
