Sample text

For example, the development of predictive mathematical engineering theory for the construction industry is relatively recent, when seen in the context of the history of construction. In the past, builders based their designs on observations of performance of earlier construction. Failures led to a new understanding of structural behavior and to a corresponding improvement in design. Robert Mark, in his research on cathedral design and construction during the Gothic period, has found evidence that a communication network existed among the various cathedral builders in Europe.

There are, however, important opportunities within the construction industry for disseminating information about products, procedures, and assemblies. Many repetitive and costly performance problems occur because of information transfer deficiencies. Information is needed to mitigate the problems associated with leaking roofs and facades in buildings. Problems with specific products and details occur over and over © 2001 CRC Press LLC again, simply because information is not collected and disseminated to the appropriate decision makers.

The general consensus that emerged from this conference was that both the frequency and severity of failures were on the increase. There was not, however, general agreement as to the reasons for this increase. Several contributing trends were noted during the discussions and are included here. Some of these issues are unique to the construction industry, but others are present, to varying degrees, in all fields of engineering practice. One problem noted by many practicing professionals is the loss of control by the designer over execution of the design.
