Within this activity, cultural heritage will be protected, strengthened, and promoted, as well as human life when visiting these monuments. The main objective of this proposal is the achievement of the convergence between the activities and methods related to the protection and promotion of the monument stock, as well as the promotion of safe evacuation especially in the tourist season, in all involved countries, through a joint implementation. It is based on a previous methodology for pre-earthquake assessment of Historical Masonry Structures, carried out by EPPO (Earthquake Planning and Protection Organization).
The aim of the second level pre-earthquake assessment is to re-evaluate the ranking of identified vulnerable buildings based on the detailing and evaluation of structural parameters and social criteria. This evaluation goes into more detail than the pre-existing methodology and requires access to all parts of the building, sketches detailing geometry and damage, visual assessment and spot checks of construction materials and basic calculations to quantify the characteristics of indexes without performing an analysis of the structure.We selected 36 buildings as sample and a scientific committee has carried out the relevant dynamic analysis for 4 representative buildings out of the 36. This analysis has served as a pilot study in order to validate the proposed methodology. A Workshop has also been organised within the stakeholders in order to present the goals we achieved.
Development of a methodology for a two-stage preseismic control of the monuments, design and production of records for the preseismic control with relevant algorithm and data base that will serve as a tool for future applications in other regions
Pilot Case Study in Nafplio, Greece, which contributes to the forthcoming Greek Code and to other Codes of the countries involved, for interventions on monuments
Design and production of a software application for the safe evacuation of the Historical Center/Town
