The engineers are engaged in the technical aspects of the project on Day 5 of the Post Disaster Assessment of the Philippines. The failures have run the gamut from lost roofing metal to complete collapse of reinforced concrete structures. See more at the ASCE website. On Saturday, May 3, a team of seven civil engineers from ASCE’s Technical Council on Forensic Engineering, in cooperation with the Technical Council on Wind Engineering, left for the Philippines on a week-long mission to conduct post-disaster assessments, documenting evidence of structural and geo-system damage to historic and residential structures and public infrastructure. Mark E. Leeman, P.E., M.ASCE, vice president of Facility Engineering Associates of Fairfax, Virginia, chronicles the team’s experiences in this exclusive daily report for ASCE. This is the fifth installment in the series.
