Journal Journal of Performance of Constructed Facilities

Aim & Scope

The Journal of Performance of Constructed Facilities attempts to improve the quality of the constructed product through interdisciplinary communication. Papers examine the causes and consequences of failures and other performance problems. The principal purpose of the Journal is to disseminate information on failures and performance deficiencies of constructed facilities. The term “failures” in this context may mean catastrophic events, but also includes any performance deficiency from which a significant lesson can be learned, such as serviceability problems. Both the technical causes and procedural causes of failures are of interest. Procedural causes include human errors in design, construction, and/or operation that allow the failures to occur. The Journal welcomes manuscripts that deal with failures, methods of investigation of failures, special techniques for failure investigations, reconstruction and repair, and issues of ethics. Also of interest are manuscripts on design and construction practices that could lead to or have led to failures. Papers that discuss the interface between various professionals in the construction industry are of special interest. Manuscripts discussing risk management and failure prevention techniques are also encouraged. In addition, manuscripts on monitoring the performance of existing facilities and maintenance of the infrastructure are within the intended scope of the Journal. [1]
