Unit 9 - Sustainable structural systems

Mita, Akira (Japan) / Harris, Richard (United Kingdom)

Sustainable structural systems (reduce, refurbish, reuse, recycle, damage control, risk-based design, performance-based design, structural health monitoring) Sustainability measures for structural systems in terms of environment, society and economy aspects are discussed. In the past, the measure of structural sustainability has been in the narrow field of economic sustainability. In the modern world, sustainable structural systems may be defined by structures that are designed and maintained to minimize risks threatening their sustainability and that of the broader world in terms of all three considerations.
