New Techniques and Old Buildings: a Note

Engineer’s point of view The civil engineer has to approach an old structure from his specific point of view.

They may provide general information and measurements, but they cannot relieve the engineer from his own thorough examination and documentation. Professor Dr.-Ing. Fritz Wenzel
