The vast majority of the damages in components are usually traced back to failures in their structural design, as well as faulty coordination between mechanical loads, the surrounding environment, their geometry, stresses, the material used, and its fabrication. Therefore, damages can be mostly avoided in construction if all factors are taken into account.
In this course, the basics of structural durability and the interaction of important factors that are used in determining the problems in structural design, production and material selection, durability, and reliability are conveyed.
