      Handbook of Materials Failure Analysis: With Case Studies from the Construction Industry provides a thorough understanding of the reasons materials fail in certain situations, covering important scenarios including material defects, mechanical failure due to various causes, and improper material selection and/or corrosive environment. The book begins with a general overview of materials. Buy Construction Failure by Jacob Feld online at Alibris. We have new and used copies available, in 2 editions - starting at $

      This book recognizes and discusses the fact that, while collapses are the most spectacular type of failures covered in the field of forensic engineering, the discipline also includes, for example, the investigation of failures in serviceability as well as performance during construction and over the lifespan of the structures.   Foner’s book is indispensible, but dense. A pithier primer can be found in Michael W. Fitzgerald’s “Splendid Failure: Postwar Reconstruction in the American South” (Ivan R. Dee, ).

      CONSTRUCTION DEFECTS - CAUSES OF FAILURES OF BUILDING ENVELOPES. A construction defect is generally defined as a defect or deficiency in the design, the construction, and/or in the materials or systems used on a project that may not be readily observable and results in a building, structure or component that is not suitable for the purpose.   First published in , Jacob Feld's Construction Failure has long been considered the classic text on the subject. Retaining all of the key components of Feld's comprehensive exploration of the root causes of failure, this Second Edition addresses a multitude of important industry developments to bring this landmark work up to date for a new generation of engineers, architects, and students/5(6).
