PERPETUATE at 15WCEE in Lisbon
PERPTEUATE staff will participate to the 15th World Conference on Earthquake Engineering, that will be held in Lisbon, October, 24- 28 .
During the conference, on Tuesday 25, from 17.15 to 19.15, there will be a joint special session (SS25.4) named:
Earthquake Protection of Cultural Heritage
Results from NIKER and PERPETUATE European FP7 Projects
NIKER and PERPETUATE are European FP7 Research Projects centered to earthquake protection of cultural heritage in European and Mediterranean countries, coordinated by Prof. Claudio Modena and Prof. Sergio Lagomarsino, respectively. Started both in 2010, NIKER and PERPETUATE projects aggregate 28 institutions and hundreds of researchers dealing with laboratory and in-situ experimental tests, numerical modeling, monitoring and applications to relevant case studies.
This special session would like to promote a discussion on some topics related to the seismic assessment of cultural heritage, which still represent open issues (i.e. definition of limit states, suitable modeling strategies, development of new integrated materials, technologies and tools for the seismic strengthening of historical buildings etc.).
Here you can downolad the full programme of the event.
At the Conference PPERPETUATE Staff will present a lot of articles referred to the Project, undelying once again the great importance this project has in terms of research and dissemination.
