Page Updated (October 18th, 2018) @ (04:25 pm)


10 – 11  October 2018

Venue: INTACH, New Delhi

The broad aim of the course is to discuss the issues and complexities related to structural engineering for the conservation of historic buildings
The course will introduce the concept of ‘conservation engineering’. This is a new concept that underpins the understanding, analysis and conservation of historic buildings from a structural engineering perspective. The discussions and case studies will illustrate some of the key scientific and non-destructive methods of testing and analysis. There will be sessions related to understanding the structural systems in heritage buildings in order to introduce structural retrofitting with the help of related case studies. An interaction session are planned for understanding the SORs and how to do rate analysis.
Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this Master class the participants will be able to:
  • gain introduction to the notions of value and significance associated with cultural heritage.
  • develop basic knowledge of the approaches to conservation.
  • develop an understanding of the basic principles of structural engineering and retrofitting for conservation.
  • gain an introduction to identifying and assessing structural problems with historic buildings.
  • start thinking critically about the issues related to structural engineering aspects of heritage conservation.
  • develop basic knowledge of preparing SORs and rate analysis.
The course will be taught by the staff at INTACH Heritage Academy and invited guest speakers on specific aspects of the course
