Identification and advanced modelling for the analysis of the seismic risk of structures
The activity concerns the study of the methods of structural identification based on dynamic tests in situ and the up-dating of advanced FEM models. Linear and non-linear models of structures (2D and 3D) will be developed considering also soil-structure interaction and non-structural elements (as infill walls and plants). The structural analysis will be implemented in the dynamic field considering various seismic inputs applied to designed or existing structures.
Furthermore the advanced systems and materials for the seismic assessment or retrofit will be examined (i.e. base isolation, dissipative bracing, composite materials).
