This book includes extended versions of the conferences presented at the International Seminar on structural Analysis of historical Constructions held in Barcelona on November 8-10, 1995. The text has been carefully prepared by a selection of prestigious authors with the aim to providing updated information on the possibilities of the available techniques for inspection, analysis and repair of historical constructions. In addition, an important simultaneous attempt is made to introduce the reader to the more conceptual and methodological aspects involved in the analysis and intervention on the ancient monuments. The content of the book will be useful for architects and engineers interested in a deep understanding of the structural performance of historical constructions in order to define a truly effective, although fully respectful, strategy for intervention and repair. It is expected that the gathering of the opinions and the presentation of the different practical cases selected in this book will contribute to develop the criteria needed to lay-out future activities in this field.
