Abstract:

Each construction failure provides information that may be used to prevent similar failures. Therefore, the systematic investigation of construction failures should be encouraged. These investigations identify errors to be avoided, and thus contribute to improvement in the safety of future designs. Each construction failure points to a gap either in theory or practice and thereby fosters innovations. As well as construction failure analysis, other effective methods for preventing construction failures are discussed.
