0 Reviews
The proceedings of the fourth symposium on this topic examine the rapid advances and innovations being made in the theoretical and applied aspects of structural masonry. Focusing on the integration of computer modelling with experimental methods, assessment techniques, restoration and retro-fitting procedures, this is a thorough examination of the subject by leading international experts. Contains numerous graphs and tables.
