This project is based on previous work for the Implementation of EC8-Part 3 for Seismic Assessment and Retrofitting of Existing Buildings (2011). For more information, see the project presentation.
The continuation of the project (2012-2013) aimed to produce a study on “Assessment and Interventions on Reinforced Concrete and Masonry Buildings". The document will take into account the Part 3 of the Eurocode 8, elaborating specific objects and facilitating its implementation. The project included the collection and dissemination of experiences in Greece, Bulgaria and Romania and the identification of issues that may cause differences in large scale practical application of EC8 part 3 in each partner country as well as the identification of needed changes in EC8 part 3 and national regulations. Proposals to fulfill needs of coverage in conjunction with needs of safety and vulnerability data, coping with the European requirements were made. To this end, ECPFE also organised a Workshop with subject: “Implementation of the EC8-p3 :2005 –Assessment and Interventions on buildings in Earthquake prone areas” in April 2013 in Athens.
