Integrated life cycle design of structures

Research output: Book/ReportBook (author)

Abstract

Design is an important part of construction: translating the requirements of owners, users and society into performance requirements of the structural system; creating and optimising structural solutions which fulfil those requirements and finally, proving through analysis and dimensioning calculations, that these requirements are fulfilled. The new model of integrated life cycle design presented in this book includes a framework for integrated structural life cycle design, a description of the design process and its phases, special life cycle design methods regarding different aspects like life cycle costs, life cycle environmental impact, design for reuse and recycling, service life design, durability design, multiple attribute optimisation and multiple attribute decision-making. This book provides methods and methodologies for design of structures in order to meet the requirements of sustainable developments during the entire service life of the structures. The scope of this manual includes both and non-load bearing structures of buildings, bridges, towers, dams and other structural facilities.
