Knowledge of Service Loads – The Key to Structural Integrity

Abstract:

Article Preview

This paper emphasises the importance of the knowledge of service loads to both the initial design process and the maintenance of structural integrity during the lifetime of engineering components and structures. Three case studies are presented. All involve accidents which caused major loss of life: the Hillsborough Stadium disaster in Britain, the German ICE train crash at Eschede and the China Airlines disaster off Taiwan.
