After the 1989 collapse of the Civic Tower of Pavia, Italy, the Italian government appointed a scientific committee to analyse the causes of the collapse and to check the state of other monuments in Pavia. The masonry structures were carefully surveyed and subjected to a variety of in-situ and laboratory tests and stress analyses using finite element models. An extensive monitoring system was developed and installed in the Cathedral and six medieval towers. Data collected by monitoring was processed and interpreted to verify the behaviour of each structure, and an expert system for on-line management and interpretation (KALEIDOS) was developed.

    Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
