Format: Paperback
I am a civil engineer, and have read a number of textbooks and journals on engineering failures and forensic engineering. I think this book is the best I've read. A multitude of cases are separated into sections based on the general area of cause; structural statics and dynamics, structural analysis, mechanics of materials, etc. It contains many varied cases, each covered in an informative and interesting manner. I would recommend it highly.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not only is this book an excellent study for Civil Engineers, all Engineers would benefit from reading this book to see how to express technical details in a very clear and concise fashion. In addition lessons learned are very valuable in the fact that at certain points the warnings were there but a person or persons were so adamant that the obvious signs were either overlooked or ignored. Ramming a project through is all well and good if you have the right team in place with all the What Ifs fully discussed and explored. A very valuable tool for any reader and particularly useful for accredited and non accredited Civil Engineers. As a professional Electrical,Mechanical and Civil Engineer I found this book refreshing, absorbing and instructive.

A valuable book for every student or graduate of Civil Engineering. It puts the "touch" on the small details that create a real tragedy. Well organized topics. Definitely a good work of Mr. Norbert J. Delatte.
Without a doubt, should be a required subject in schools.

I do not give 5 stars only because of the poor quality of the photographs.
