  • Trends and influencing factors in professional indemnity claims
    • Abstract: Griffiths & Armour have been practising since 1934 and have an entire division dedicated to professional indemnity insurance, Griffiths & Armour Professional Risks (GAPR). The vast majority of GAPR’s client base consists of construction professionals, and this makes them one of the most experienced professional indemnity insurance brokers in the market today. This article will, as the title suggests, consider what factors influence claims against construction professionals, with a particular emphasis on consulting engineers. It will also seek to reveal whether there are any identifiable meaningful trends in respect of such claims against civil engineers and structural engineers. The data sample used consists of extracts from GAPR’s database, a worthy source given their history and client base.
       
  • Briefing: Statistical pattern-recognition-based structural health
           monitoring
    • Abstract: In the last 40 years, the interest of the civil engineering community in structural health monitoring has grown remarkably, driven by an increased concern for structural safety and reliability. This motivation, coupled with the enormous strides in computational efficiency, has paved the way for development of vibration-based structural health monitoring techniques for automatic inspection of civil infrastructure systems. This briefing presents the emerging discipline of statistical pattern-recognition-based structural health monitoring, which is able to assess structural conditions rapidly while accounting for the unavoidable uncertainties affecting any real-life application.

  • Legal risks incurred under the application of BIM in Taiwan
    • Abstract: The wider application of building information modelling (BIM) brings increased convenience and efficiency but incurs some legal issues or risks. These issues have not only become legal concerns creating potential risks, but real barriers to the continued development of BIM. The most important feature that distinguishes BIM from non-BIM designs is the exchange of semantic information and collaborative framework. Potential issues which might occur under the Taiwanese legal system are: (a) inconsistencies between various software packages; (b) errors caused by imperfect software; (c) intellectual property rights issues; and (d) involvement of BIM in construction contracts. If the issues of utilising BIM are consequential and inevitable, their resolution is also essential in promoting further development. Doubts about the resolution of legal arguments could be mitigated by following the stipulations of the existing legal system and supplementing the contractual clauses. Even though they cannot be eradicated completely, their possible effects can be controlled through the analysis described in this work. Loss or damages can be avoided by taking into consideration the commercial terms and conditions when carrying out specific projects.
       
  • Lessons learned from the Great East Japan Earthquake
    • Abstract: In the event of disasters, one of the most important priorities for rescue agencies at an early stage is to secure traffic on routes connecting with the affected areas. In the Great East Japan Earthquake, 2310 km of the expressway network operated by East Nippon Expressway Co., Ltd. (Nexco East) was closed. However, within 20 h approximately 770 km was reopened for ordinary traffic and approximately 1040 km for emergency vehicle use. Thirteen days afterwards, temporary repair works had been completed; all expressways were opened to all traffic, which contributed to emergency restoration activities. Based on the experience of this earthquake, Nexco East has been improving its disaster response capability and developing measures such as the utilisation of rest areas as disaster response bases, introducing inspection procedures in the early stages after disaster occurrence and strengthening cooperation with related organisations.
       
  • Understanding the risks from extreme rainfall
    • Abstract: Empirical engineering design based on single ‘fail safe’ target return periods is not appropriate in a non-stationary future climate. Extreme responses to rainfall are very likely to increase under climate change, posing increased hazards to critical infrastructure and the most vulnerable sectors of society. Structures with long life spans require reasonable estimates of the hazards that will be faced now and in the future, necessitating some assessment of future rainfall extremes. Such challenges are not new. Although future climate conditions may be unprecedented, techniques to optimise water management and minimise risk in more extreme climate regimes are not. Designs that account for future climatic extremes could benefit from other countries' experiences of highly variable extreme rainfall. This paper synthesises the physical mechanisms leading to extreme rainfall, and their representation in climate models. It then summarises recent observed changes in extreme rainfall and the anticipated future changes in response to changing climate conditions. Finally, it discusses ways in which different measures of extreme rainfall, such as seasonality and intensity, can be used to inform designs for future flood resilience.
       
  • Legal matters related to structural damage in the Netherlands
    • Abstract: When structural damage occurs and disputes arise, forensic engineers have to search for the causes of this damage to find out who can be held liable for it. Legal systems must provide an adequate, reasonable, effective and complete way to solve these disputes. Each country has its own system with advantages and disadvantages. This paper provides an overview of the Dutch legal system concerning liability, dispute resolution and insurances. These themes will be illustrated by quantitative research data, a comparison between the Netherlands and England and by discussing advantages and disadvantages of rules, such as reasonableness and influences on structural safety. In this way, the aim is to share knowledge and contribute to the discussion regarding the legal and judicial framework relating to structural damage.
       
  • Deterioration assessment of an immersed-tube road tunnel in Taiwan
    • Abstract: Taiwan has been constructing tunnels since the 1960s and more than 300 are now in operation. Unfortunately, some of the early tunnels are now showing signs of significant deterioration. This paper provides a case study of a busy 30-year-old urban undersea immersed-tube road tunnel, which is suffering from cracks, water ingress and corrosion. Non-destructive inspection techniques were carried out to determine the level of deterioration and to make an overall assessment of the tunnel's operational safety. The paper describes the tunnel's main defects, the results of settlement, and the structural inspections and monitoring judgements made. The paper is intended to serve as a reference for assessing the deterioration of immersed-tube tunnels.
       
  • Failure case study of RC foundations of wind turbine towers
    • Abstract: Wind loads on wind turbine towers (WTTs) and fan blades are transferred to the reinforced concrete (RC) foundations by embedded steel anchor bolts or circular steel tubes (CSTs). Understandably, the stability and bearing capacity of the RC foundations are important to the safety of WTTs. The design principle and operation of RC WTT foundations are analysed and discussed in this paper. The load-carrying capacity of the RC foundations is studied based on the mechanical behaviour of embedded CSTs in concrete. The study shows that the concrete over the lower steel flange plate of the CST in RC foundations can be easily fractured and crushed under extreme typhoon loads. This mode of failure is frequently neglected in the design of RC foundations for WTTs. As a result, failure of WTTs occurs relatively easily when they are subjected to extreme typhoon loads. The failure case study also indicates that serious failures are associated with such a design defect. Based on the analysis and the case study, some recommendations are put forward in order to improve the design of RC foundations for WTTs.

  • Assessment of the degree of heating of lightweight concrete
    • Abstract: Estimating the fire severity and temperature of structural elements in buildings during fire action is one of the primary factors for assessing their condition after a fire. Some existing traditional methods for assessing this temperature, such as visual inspection, hammer sounding and petrographic analysis, are well established. However, owing to the significant variation of the results it is highly advisable to conduct cross-checking by using parallel approaches. The aim of this paper is to offer initial information about the development of a novel approach, in addition to the traditional methods for estimating the degree of heating of normal and lightweight (lightweight expanded clay aggregate) concrete, which could be beneficial for cross-checking. This approach is based on results from an experimental study concerning the reduction of compressive strength of concrete after high-temperature exposure. Developed analytical correlation between the reduction of strength and the degree of heating is presented by way of parabolic equations. Further verification and consequent testing of the proposed methodology will allow a good estimation of the maximum temperature of different parts of fire damaged buildings to be obtained. It will provide an opportunity to use this information, as an additional tool, to estimate the condition of the remaining structure after a fire, in order to propose appropriate repairing methods.
       
  • Rethinking failure: time for closer engineer–scientist
           collaborations on design
    • Abstract: Catastrophic failures in the built and natural environment resulting from climate extremes such as flooding have become all too familiar. Limit state design under changing climate conditions may no longer be appropriate and may lead to more frequent and unplanned failures. Developing optimal design responses by rethinking the target ‘failure rate’ to reduce our increasing vulnerability to extremes is essential. Addressing this requires strong communication links between the civil engineering community and climate scientists. These communication links, however, have often lacked the essential component of an ongoing two-way interaction promoting clear communication of the core issues. This paper discusses the need for improved dialogue to understand where the built and natural environment is most vulnerable to today's climate extremes and how this vulnerability may develop in the future, and gives examples of successful communication strategies and collaborations between scientists and engineers.
       
  • Briefing: Antarctic ice sheet mass loss and future sea-level rise
    • Abstract: Sea-level rise, one of the most obvious consequences of climate change, has direct impacts on coastal communities and economic infrastructure. It is important to assess current sea-level rise and forecast future rates. These predictions are made difficult because the potential for rapid destabilisation of some of the world's large ice sheets, in particular the west Antarctic ice sheet, remains poorly constrained. In particular, new processes and new mapping and modelling, currently emerging from the science community, may have a radical impact on forecasts. Here, a summary of observations and models of recent west Antarctic ice sheet dynamics are provided. This summary highlights that sea-level rise above the ∼1 m expected by 2100 is possible if ice sheet response begins to exceed present rates. Moreover, ice losses from Antarctica have an amplified impact on the coastlines of North America and Europe, because of the resulting redistribution of water due to the changed gravitational field near the ice sheet.
       
  • Briefing: Extreme weather: observed precipitation changes in the USA
    • Abstract: As atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases have risen over the past decades, changes to the flow of water throughout the environment (the hydrological cycle) have resulted in more frequent extreme-precipitation events. The events, sometimes aggravated by changes to land surfaces, can lead to increased flooding, which has impacts on both human health and social infrastructure. Increase of extreme precipitation has occurred in all regions of the continental USA and further changes are expected in the coming decades. Observations and projections of precipitation changes can be useful for the design and construction of robust infrastructure that is more resistant to both heavy precipitation and flooding.
       
  • Release of data following a serious incident in the UK construction
           industry
    • Abstract: A fundamental part of the professional engineer's duty is to keep abreast of contemporary information that is relevant to their particular area of work. In an industry where labour input (in its widest sense) predominates, despite all our software and sophisticated construction equipment, this is essential as scope for error is ever present. The nature of the construction industry is such that catastrophic failure, with the potential for multiple fatalities and other concerns, is a plausible scenario. Hence, in order for the forensic engineer to operate, and industry generally to learn from the misfortunes of others, the requisite data from serious incidents must be made available to the industry at large, comprehensively and timeously. As things stand in the UK, it is frequently not so available. This aim, namely to learn, is distinct from apportioning blame. This paper examines why this lack of data exists, touches on the practice in some other countries, and considers what might be done to alleviate the situation.
       
  • Hints and pitfalls: the successful expert witness
    • Abstract: This paper considers the process of instruction of an expert engineer and what information should be provided to her/him. Early and full information from an instructing solicitor helps enormously when planning a forensic investigation. The role of the expert at different stages in the proceedings is described. The paper also considers some of the things to look for during a desktop investigation or site visit. These include: what to do when the evidence is no longer there; second guessing what you might need for a site visit; and looking beyond the obvious solution. Photographic evidence can be misleading. To prove causation it may be necessary to demonstrate a chain of events and one missing link will invalidate the argument. Many issues are technical but there are often contractual matters and questions of wording in specifications. The solicitor may expect the engineer to be familiar with current good practice in the field. Case studies and examples are used to demonstrate some of the pitfalls and provide hints for a successful forensic investigation.

  • Resilient design of landslip prevention measures: a case study
    • Abstract: Bervie Braes is a 750 m long, and up to 55 m high, coastal slope above a residential area and harbour in Stonehaven, Scotland, with a history of instability mostly associated with the road traversing the slope. This paper outlines the most probable causes of the instability on the slope and details the hazards that had to be taken into account during the design and construction of stabilisation measures. The hazards associated with hydrology in terms of future potential change in rainfall patterns and intensity, but also in terms of providing adequate drainage capacity and flows, were juxtaposed against the geotechnical hazards of shallow landslips and erosion near the surface, as well as deep-seated landslides on the slope. Owing to the complex nature of the hazards and the need for longer life expectancy of the design, the soil nailing option was combined with eco-engineering strategies to provide resilience for a changing climate. A risk-based approach considering the number of lives at danger during a catastrophic failure was adopted when deciding on the priority of the areas of the slope to be stabilised. The sustainability of the design solution and the construction methods were constantly monitored and re-appraised throughout the project.
