Editorial
The study of actual structural failures has become a useful tool for both structural engineers and students, as shown by the ever-growing number of books and articles published and the conferences dedicated to the subject.
Much can be learned from failures that can later be applied to improvements in the field of structural design in the form of new theories, concepts, structural details, etc. One of the most famous examples is, of course, the effect of the collapse of the Tacoma Bridge on the subsequent design of suspension bridges.
The title of this special issue of Engineering Structures is Learning from Structural Failures. It has been compiled from the work of the guest editors in recent years, both from their teaching experience as university lecturers and from their professional work as structural engineers, and contains articles on a series of real cases. Each of the articles is designed to clarify to the reader the cause of the failure and is subjected to a detailed analysis by the authors using the most appropriate tools for each case.
