Abstract:
Conservation/restoration projects for historic structures have conventionally been centered on wooden structures, but those for modern structures mostly built with bricks, stone, and reinforced concrete have also been attracting attention in recent years. For such conservation/restoration, no damage to the structures is accepted in most cases, while the reproduction of the original materials and techniques is also a key challenge. This committee summarized the technologies for the research, diagnosis, repair, and retrofitting of historic structures, while preparing a guidebook for historic structures that focuses on those designated as Japan's important cultural properties and registered tangible properties.
