Abstract

In this study, forensic investigations on several structural failures in Sri Lanka have been investigated. The reasons that led to failures of these selected case studies have been studied. In this context, method of forensic investigation includes structural analysis, Finite Element Modelling and material testing to some extent. With the outcomes of those analyses, real reasons for each failure have been explained. Furthermore, the responsibilities of some of the failures in these cases are highlighted. Finally, general conclusions are drawn from the study.
