Abstract

ABSTRACT: Assessing an existing structure implies its in-depth understanding. In the world of Medicine, full understanding of the patient is based on a well studied clinical history, a visual check, analytical tests and, consequently, a comprehensive diagnosis of the causes of the diseases. There is no reason not to apply a similar modus operandi to existing structures. This paper claims for a heller education oT young engineers, to enable them to understand an existing structure as a part of a fascinating whole and not merely as a mathematical model.
