The structural engineering profession plays a key role in the assurance of safe and serviceable building performance. Structural Safety and its Quality Assurance looks at structural safety problems from the basic concept phase to the design and construction phase from an international perspective. This committee report also discusses the overall concept of safety including how to ensure safety and will be of value in explaining these concepts of safety to a client or to the publics. Topics include: safety concepts, role of regulation and standarts, load modeling, reliability analysis, reliability-based design, durability in structural safety assessment, soils and foundations, assessment of existing structures, quality management of structural design, quality management in construction, and human error. Practicing structural engineers and students in the field of structural engineering will find this committee report beneficial.
