This latest in the popular series of the "ICE design and practice guide" presents a selection of case studies on the failures of structures to meet design requirements for strength and serviceability. An understanding of the way structures have evolved, and how the response of clients and engineers to failures has lead to current design practice, is a necessary precondition for reliable design. Safety in construction is enhanced by an appreciation of how things collapse. The cautionary lessons from past failures are a necessary guide when engineers are innovating and working at the limits of their knowledge of structures and materials.
