Engineering case studies online the analysis of engineering failures is an essential part of many engineering curricula today this focus enables modern engineers and scholars to learn what not to do and how to create designs with a greater chance of success. Types of failures in reinforced concrete buildings such as failure due to poor concrete quality, reinforcement corrosion, failure of foundations due to soil etc with case studies are discussed in small residential buildings the quality of construction is seldom questionable the reason varies from.
Beyond failure presents the circumstances of important failures that have had wide-reaching impacts on civil engineering practice each case study narrates the known facts of the situation: design and construction, the failure, subsequent investigation or analysis, and, where appropriate, additional issues such as technical concerns, ethical considerations, professional practice issues, and. Failure of foundation causes different defects in buildings such as cracks leading to failure or collapse foundation is the first element of a building where the construction starts repair of defects in foundations are most difficult and very costly, so it is most important to understand the types of foundation failure to avoid them by taking. That there is an increasing literature on failures, the study of which will result in better and safer structures 1-13 it is important to consider failures as important lessons and engineers should ensure that they do not happen again. The department of civil engineering offers programs of study in environmental, geotechnical, and structural engineering, construction engineering and management, and engineering mechanics civil engineers plan, design, and construct facilities for meeting the needs of modern society.

Case studies: origin and cause investigation, corrosion analysis, building damage, cat response, mechanical evaluations, and accident reconstruction. The botswana public building sector is used as a main case study and follow‐up studies are carried out involving another eight sadc countries the paper addresses two propositions first, that the lack of 'ubuntu' between project stakeholders is primarily due to an inappropriate project organizational structure.
A brief review of literature on failure of transmission line tower foundations have been made and case study involving data collection and visual inspection of transmission line tower foundation apart from diagnosis of transmission line tower stubs and laboratory experimentations have been presented. Engineering failures get a lot of attention—inciting morbid curiosity and fueling concern over the condition of our infrastructure but every engineering loss is the start of a forensic investigation into how, why, and what can be done to prevent future failures as with scientific failures. Geotechnical engineering is the branch of civil engineering concerned with the engineering behavior of earth materials geotechnical engineering is important in civil engineering, but also has applications in military , mining , petroleum and other engineering disciplines that are concerned with construction occurring on the surface or within.
