Abstract
Assessing an existing structure implies its in-depth understanding. In the world of Medicine, full understanding ofthe patient is based on a well studied clinical history, a visual check, analytical tests and, consequently, a comprehensive diagnosis ofthe causes ofthe diseases. There is no reason not to apply a similar modus operandi to existing structures. This papel' claims for a better education of young engineers, to enable them to understand an existing structure as a part of a fascinating whole and not merely as a mathematical model.
