The Prediction of Proneness to Structural Accidents

The paper outlines a possible approach to the problem of assessing the proneness to structural accidents of a given structure or class of structures. It seeks to distil from experience of past structural failures a number of significant parameters, by the assessment of which for a new structure its proneness to accidents could be broadly judged. A way of displaying and comparing such assessments, as by more than one engineer, is indicated. Sir Alfred Pugsley
