New Publication Provides An Outline For Incorporating Life-Cycle Concepts Into Structures and Infrastructure Systems
December 12, 2019

Structural engineering is facing a profound change toward a life-cycle oriented design philosophy in order to address the continuously increasing societal, political, economic, and environmental demand for sustainable structural and infrastructural facilities that minimize risks arising from aging, deterioration, and natural and human-made hazards.

The American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) new book, Life-Cycle Design, Assessment, and Maintenance of Structures and Infrastructure Systems is a state-of-the-art comprehensive report outlining the current status and research needs in life-cycle of civil structure and infrastructure systems. This book examines:

• The environmental impact on concrete and steel structures;
• Strategies for assessing these deteriorating systems;
• Life-cycle management concepts; and
• Maintenance policies for these structures and infrastructure networks.

This book serves as a valuable resource to engineers, managers, and government agencies concerned with life-cycle design and maintenance of civil structures and infrastructure systems.
