Structural Error: Best Practices in Repair & Rehabilitation

Intended Audience: Civil and structural engineers, designers, planners and construction monitors



Structural Error Repair & Rehabilitation

Structural error not only causes schedule overruns and increases in overall project cost, it can also lead to catastrophic building collapse. Discover how to pinpoint inadequate design and construction details before they cause a structural error in this online course developed by leading Professor Ibrahim M. Metwally.

Course Overview

This engineering PDH course outlines the technical data needed to avoid design and construction errors. Improper design detailing examples including increased stress concentration at corners, poor drainage details, freezing and thawing mishaps, and incompatibility of materials, to name a few. On the other hand, construction errors include the addition of water to concrete, improper framework alignment, poor compaction, inadequately placed and/or secured reinforcing steel, etc.

Course Flow

We start off by discussing important concepts and definitions of repair and rehabilitation. The course material then delves into the need-to-know causes, types, symptoms and prevention techniques of noteworthy design and construction errors. Next, easily digestible visual descriptions of proven repair and rehabilitation techniques for unique design and construction issues is provided. This course wraps-up with an overview of the potential costs of structural error as well as how to identify the best repair/rehabilitation method for these deficiencies.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, you’ll be able to:
  • Articulate the causes and types of common design and detailing errors in structural engineering.
  • Describe the causes and types of common construction errors in structural engineering.
  • Determine the effect of design and construction structural error on repair and rehabilitation work and costs.
  • Identify when structural error WILL and will NOT lead to building collapse.
  • Understand the required technical data to avoid further design and construction deficiencies when an existing structure has to be retrofitted.
