This book will help architects and engineers to understand and deal with the continuous damage of heavy structures. It includes a recognition of signs of the phenomenon, proposed predictive models, and guidelines for the on-site investigation, monitoring and repair of the damaged structures.

The book examines a number of well known cases: the collapse of the Civic Tower of Pavia (March 17 1989) the collapse of the St. Marco bell-tower in Venice (1902), the collapse of the Sancta Maria Magdalena bell-tower in Dusseldorf (1992) damage to the bell-tower of the Monza Cathedral damage to the Torrazzo in Cremona the collapse of the Noto Cathedral (1996).

The book describes ongoing experimental research, begun in 1989, designed to examine the phenomenon. After a careful interpretation of the experimental results, also based on experience from rock mechanics and concrete, modelling of the phenomenon for massive structures as creep behaviour of masonry was implemented.
