|Title||Establishing A Forensic Framework for Buildings in Gaza Strip: Reinforced Concrete Structures as a Case Study|
|Title in Arabic||انشاء اطار قانوني هندسي للمباني في قطاع غزة : المنشات الخرسانية كحالة دراسية|
This study looks at the relationship between civil engineering discipline and associated legislation deemed essential to carry out the former's practices. The literature reviewed, as sketched in subsequent pages of this thesis, for this purpose show a serious lack in examining this relationship. In other words, there is not yet an universal forensic framework used for the case of concrete buildings with legal aspects of failures. Such a framework is necessary to outline most legal guidelines necessary to conduct an investigation of failure's causes occurred in the construction process, or arrive at the legal responsibilities that stand behind such failures. Hence, there is a significant gap in knowledge in this respect. This study seeks fulfilling this gap by suggesting a forensic framework in an effort to approach legal issues tied to the construction process of concrete buildings, with the Gaza Strip as a particular case. The framework accordingly consists of five stages, each comprises steps that show the events inherited in a variety of tasks. The methodology adopted therefore uses three failure case studies; one is in the Gaza Strip whilst the other two are international, which serves validating the forensic framework, established for civil engineering cases within the Gaza Strip while comparing the latter to other existed frameworks. A key finding that emerge in this study suggests that the proposed framework includes identification of all types of collapses and failures within concrete buildings as well as shedding light on major and/or minor responsibilities of the failures. This study also argues that this framework could be used to other cases of similar legal conditions.
