This series of conferences has built a reputation for presenting high quality papers exploring all issues of forensic research including engineering in design, risk management, legal issues and continuing education. This conference will be held on 15 to 17April 2013 in London, United Kingdom.
The investigation of the fundamental causes of failures during the life of buildings, tunnels, bridges, foundations, etc. is crucial in optimising the construction and management of our built environment.
The Fifth International Conference on Forensic Engineering is maintaining a 150 year tradition pioneered by Telford, Brunel and Stephenson by discussing how lessons learned from failures lead to the development of improved design, construction and management practice.
The presentation of peer reviewed papers on all aspects of the Forensic Cycle will provide a catalyst for discussion of how we can deliver a better and more sustainable infrastructure.
