The WGIAGE consists of a main group three subgroups dealing with: a) integrity and ageing of metal structures and components; b) integrity and ageing of concrete structures and; c) seismic engineering. All subgroups deal with the structural integrity issues in a broad sense, and although disciplines are similar (e.g. structural mechanics and materials behaviour), the expertise needed to address group-specific issues is different. The main group serves as an entry point for CSNI. CSNI technical goals related to ageing, which are not covered by the sub-group work, will be managed by the time-limited task groups coordinated by the main group.
The principal mechanisms currently used by the working group to accomplish its objectives are: a) the conduct of meetings (including annual group meetings and specialist expert meetings and workshops) to share information and plan/coordinate/manage activities; b) the collaborative writing of consensus documents (e.g. state-of-the-art reports, technical reports and technical opinion papers) and; c) highlights related to the integrity and ageing of components and structures via technical notes.
