INDEX FILE AND CATOLOGUE OF STRUCTURAL DEFECTS

FICHIER ET CATALOGUE DES DEFAUTS DES OUVRAGES

TO ENSURE THE CONTINUOUS CONTROL OF ENGINEERING STRUCTURES (DAY-TO-DAY MAINTENANCE OR OBSERVATIONS OF DEFECTS), A CONVERSATIONAL FILE USING THE MIISFIIT INFORMATION SYSTEM WAS SET UP. THE FILE IS OPERATIONAL. IT CONSISTS OF TWO PARTS: (1) IDENTIFICATION OF THE STRUCTURE, AND (2) DETECTION AND DESCRIPTION OF DEFECTS. IN 1976, THE FILE WILL BE EXTENDED TO ENCOMPASS METAL STRUCTURES, WHICH MEANS THE DRAFTING OF THE FOLLOWING: LIST OF PARTS OF METAL STRUCTURES; CATALOGUE OF DEFECTS IN METAL STRUCTURES; LEXICON TO PERMIT THE USE OF THE FILE FOR METAL STRUCTURES.
