The book "Finite Element Analysis for Building Assessment: Advanced Use and Practical Recommendations" has just been published. This book deals with advanced numerical simulations, adopting a practical approach. Recommended material properties are discussed according to experimental evidence, building standards and codes of practice. Examples support the decision-making process toward a safe and efficient use of finite element analysis. Written primarily for practicing engineers, the book is also of value to students in engineering and technical architecture.

The book is a result of the teaching experience in the MSc in Structural Analysis of Monuments and Historical Constructions (www.msc-sahc.org) or SAHC, with more than 400 alumni from 75 countries, which received the most prestigious cultural heritage recognition in Europe: the EU Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Award.
