Restoration of Historic Buildings.
Repair of Old Masonry Buildings.
This course is about Restoration of Historic Buildings.The full course is made up of two parts. Part I will cover the theory and some examples while part II will have solved questions, sheet problems and some solved exam questions. This first part will cover topics such as: Masonry materials, Masonry Assemblages, Historic Masonry Assemblages, Load Bearing walls under axial loads and out of plane loading, repairing Historic Masonry Walls and more. There are lots of tests performed on the existing buildings which will be shown in the different chapters of the first part of the course. A nice and quick summary to Chapters 2 through 5 is shown in one PDF file within part I of the course. Examples of Historic Buildings for different parts of the world will be shown.
This course is typically taught at the second, third or fourth year for Civil Engineering students. It might also be needed for Architectural students. The course materials are in simple English. I am hoping that the participants of the 2 courses will enjoy the material and will have great understanding of the course. I am planning to attach any supporting documents in a PDF format that will summarize the lecture videos and notes.
