This book deals with applications of advanced computational-mechanics techniques for structural analysis, strength rehabilitation and aseismic design of monuments, historical buildings and related structures.

The authors have extensive experience working with complicated structural analysis problems in civil and mechanical engineering in Europe and North America and have worked together with architects, archaeologists and students of engineering.

The text evolves gradually and introduces the material without the burden of deep theoretical details. The authors believe that this is the most effective, didactical way to help readers to start working on real-life problems as soon as possible, with the use of sophisticated, but user-friendly software.

The book is divided into five chapters under the following headings:

Architectural form and structural system; Static and dynamic analysis; Computational techniques; Case studies of selected heritage structures; Restoration modeling and analysis
