Hi,

Please advise, if a building is not in a good condition can we say that its statics has been disturbed?

Thanks,

A.

    That isn't a natural way of putting it and I'm not sure it's even correct factually. Most people just use the words you used in your sentence: not in good condition, or something similar.

    I have not heard of the term "statics of a building". Perhaps it is a specialized term used in the field "building construction".

    If it is, and if you are writing for people who work in that field, you can use it. But I am not in construction so I don't know.

    Whether statics can be used will depend on the context. The Slovak equivalent is used in all contexts but in English statics is limited to engineering contexts. So it will depend on whether the document is about structural engineering. It's really impossible to comment without knowing the context. Same goes for disturbed.
