We spend a lot of time working around Brisbane diagnosing slab heave, settlement and subsidence. They’re not all the same thing and sometimes working out which way a building is moving can be confusing.
We’re always trying to improve our knowledge so that we can help you better but last week I came across a document that could help improve YOUR knowledge, especially if you are a structural engineer involved in this sort of work.
It’s all about diagnosing heave, subsidence and settlement and it has some handy definitions and guidelines.
It’s written using American terminology and standards. Notwithstanding it is an excellent reference guide.
Have a good week.
