Reflecting the authors' extensive experience and describing the results of restoration projects they have worked on, this book deals with applications of advanced computational mechanics techniques in structural analysis, strength rehabilitation and aseismic design of monuments, historical buildings and related structures. The results are given with clear explanations so that civil and structural engineers, architects and archaeologists, and students of these disciplines can understand how to evaluate the structural worthiness of heritage buildings without the use of difficult mathematics. The book is also accessible to specialists with a less theoretical background such as: historians, sociologists and anthropologists who wish to develop an awareness of the significance of past human efforts.
