This book contains papers presented at the Eighth International Conference on Structural Studies, Repairs and Maintenance of Heritage Architecture (STREMAH). The pre-eminent conference series dealing with this area, the STREMAH meetings provide an ideal forum for architects, curators, engineers, art historians, surveyors and archaeologists to exchange opinions and experiences, present state-of-the-art scientific research and practical findings, and discuss problems and solutions.

Over 80 papers are included and these cover topics such as: Historical and Architectural Aspects; Deterioration, Protection and Evaluation of Materials; Simulation and Modelling; Structural Issues; Prevention of Structural Damage; Seismic Behaviour; Case Studies; Maintenance and Repairs; Material Problems; and Timber Constructions. Contributions to two special sessions on The Structural Conservation of the Archaeological Heritage of Italy and Long Term Behaviour of Masonry Structures: Learning from Failures, are also featured.
