The material properties, spatial configuration and variation in the construction of steel structures means they often have the potential for reconstruction. This book provides civil engineers with the necessary information to approach projects of reconstruction and reinforcement of steel structures such as buildings, masts, towers, chimneys, storage tanks and bridges. The book analyses the causes of failures, presents up-to-date information on the methodology and equipment used for diagnosis of failures, and includes a survey of repair and reconstruction techniques. The methods described are illustrated by examples of successful real-life case studies, and relevant codes are examined where appropriate. Assessment and Refurbishment of Steel Structures is a comprehensive combination of both theory and practice, and is an essential reference for engineers engaged in the modernisation and repair of civil engineering steel structures.Repair. and. reconstruction. of. civil. structures. 5.1 Hall structures 5.1.1 Reconstruction of the roof structure of a stadium ...
