In this paper, we provide an overview of how Safe-by-Design is conceived and applied in practice in a large number of engineering disciplines. We discuss the differences, commonalities, and possibilities for mutual learning found in those practices and identify several ways of putting those disciplinary outlooks in perspective. The considered...

During the last decade a lot of attention has been paid to sustainability of structures. Reuse of existing buildings, limiting environmental impact and reuse of elements were applied in practice. In general, reuse of elements, with for instance the use of a donor skeleton, was applied on a very limited scale, as this reuse often comes at a price...

In 2011 the city of Enschede was shocked by the collapse of the roof of an extension for the FC Twente stadium. The structure collapsed during construction and two fatalities and nine injuries were recorded. The cantilevering steel roof structure was covered with corrugated steel sheets and stabilized by bracings. Investigation showed that...

Human and Organizational Factors (HOFs) are considered to have significant impacts on structural reliability. Yet how structural reliability is affected by these factors and how large this impact is remains inadequately studied. A model that is designed to reveal such relationships is proposed in this paper. First, a review of problem related...

In 2003 five balconies of an apartment building in Maastricht, the Netherlands, collapsed, resulting in two fatalities. The building was just completed.<br/>Forensic investigations showed that detailing of the reinforcement in the precast concrete slabs of the balconies was questionable. Several design changes hampered clear force flow through...

Evaluating and predicting structural damage from multi-hazards is a complex task mainly due to the varying ways in which hazards affect structures. Also, different damage scales that employ different parameters and criteria are used for evaluating the hazards, making a connection between the damage assessment of two or more hazards difficult....

Based on established theories from literature and best practices of forensic investigations in aerospace engineering, civil engineering and biomechanical engineering, the Delft University of Technology has developed a Delft approach<br/>for forensic investigations. This integrated approach consists of three elements. First, because a product has...

The Bos &amp; Lommer plaza complex in Amsterdam was completed in 2004. This complex consisted of apartments, shops and a parking for over 500 cars. In 2006, an 11 ton truck was positioned on the plaza deck and caused structural damage. Part of the load bearing structure had failed and the apartments were evacuated, until the deck was strutted....

During the last years, induced seismicity in the northern part of the Netherlands increased and the seismic assessment of unreinforced masonry (URM) structures became an important issue. As the problem is recent, the current building stock is not designed to withstand earthquakes and national guidelines are under development, but currently not...

A working group on forensic engineering (WG8) was established within the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE) in 2011. This working group aims to mitigate structural failures and improve forensic engineering practices. To accomplish this goal, several activities were organised such as an international survey...

Forensic Structural Engineering is the professional practice of determining the cause(s) of a structural failure, often with the aim to lay out a technical basis to identify the responsible parties for a failure. Although Forensic Structural Engineering is given as course at several universities in USA and UK, at many institutions it is no...

Cross-laminated timber, or CLT, is receiving attention for its potential use in tall buildings. As a combustible material, one of the challenges for the construction of these buildings is the fire risk that results from its use in the structure. Unprotected CLT can burn along with the fuel load present in a compartment. Irrespective of its fire...

When structural damage occurs and disputes arise, forensic engineers have to search for the causes of this damage to find out who can be held liable for it. Legal systems must provide an adequate, reasonable, effective and complete way to solve these disputes. Each country has its own system with advantages and disadvantages. This paper provides...

Radar interferometry is a technique which can observe the earth’s surface during day and night time. It makes uses of thousands of pulses per second that are transmitted by satellites and reflected by the surface of, for instance, structures. By analyzing the data it is possible to measure displacements of the surface within millimeter precision...

From forensic investigation it is known that many structural failures can be attributed to human errors and organizational factors. To provide project leaders with information on the current state of factors in the building process influencing structural safety, we developed a quick assessment tool. Logistic regression was used, based on data of...

Structural safety during construction is a main concern for the building industry. Collapses of temporary structures or incomplete permanent structures are a threat for the safety of persons. Based on data from Dutch Labour Inspectorate this study concluded that approximately 20% of the fatalities during construction are related to structural...

Failure investigations show that 80-85% of the structural failures are caused by inadequacies in the design and construction process, related to human and organizational factors. This study showed that safety culture, allocation of responsibilities control, communication and collaboration and knowledge infrastructure need improvement in the...

After several major structural incidents in the Netherlands, such as the collapse of five balconies in Maastricht in 2001 resulting in two fatalities, various initiatives have been started to improve structural safety. Research studies were initiated on the characteristics, causes and consequences of structural incidents. In this paper the...
