Colloquium on Design Life of Structures - the Present Position. General Introduction and State of the Art

This 1/2-day colloquium has developed from the 1990 Henderson Colloquium held by the British Group of IABSE at Pembroke College, Cambridge. The proceedings of this will be available shortly. The topic under discussion at Cambridge was ‘The design life of structures’. In simple terms, the purpose of the colloquium was to bring together about 30 experts, while asking them to contribute a paper on some aspect of the subject, and, most important, to take part in a debate on the feasibility of developing design life concepts, which might permit the construction industry to consciously design and construct structures which perform ‘better’ in service-life terms.
