Northern Counties Regional Group - Annual General Meeting followed by a talk on Reinforcement and Repair of Historic Timber Structures

The Northern Counties Regional Group Annual General Meeting followed by a talk on Reinforcement and Repair of Historic Timber Structures.

This talk will present a discussion on the recent trends in the use of composite materials and stainless steel profiles for repair and reinforcement of historic timber structures which suffer degradation due to biotic and non-biotic attacks. The challenges experienced in dealing with the structures suffering degradation can vary from inadequate load carrying capacity to complexities involved with the choice of repair materials and techniques. This talk shall present the state of the art in the use of new solutions in retrofitting timber structural elements within historic structures.

Dr Marco Corradi is an Aggregate Professor in Structural Mechanics at Perugia University, Italy. He has an internationally recognised research profile in the field of structural analysis and retrofitting of historic structures. He is a highly accomplished academic with some of his research focusing on the use of new advanced materials for upgrading of existing masonry and wood historic constructions. He is author of 199 articles and 4 books.

This will be an interesting talk for all levels of Engineers.

Non-members of the IStructE are welcome to attend this event.
