Sharing and application of innovative strategies for seismic protection of masonry buildings
Priority Axis 1

Promoting innovation capacities for a more competitive area

Specific Objective: 
OS 1.1.
Investment Priority: 
PI 1b
Typology: 
Standard
Overall Objective of the Project: 

The project overall objective is the definition, sharing and application of innovative strategies for seismic protection of existing masonry buildings, within Programme Investment Priority Program 1.b.

Project summary: 

The seismic protection of buildings, for the protection of people, structures and contents, is a
common problem in the area. A synergy of skills is proposed between productive  (4 companies involved) and research (2 research bodies involved) sectors to promote innovation in structural consolidation interventions (aimed at optimized use of resources) and spread acquired knowledge and experience  to increase the know-how and competitiveness of construction workers. The project focuses on existing brick buildings, mostly exposed to seismic risk. A joint study on the intervention strategies in use is foreseen to allow the definition of innovative strategies, based on the targeted use of modern fiber-reinforced composite materials for the creation of curbs tops, floor ties, reinforced plasters to apply outside the building. An entire building in full scale, and other accessory test samples, will be designed, built and tested for the optimization of materials, application and efficacy for such intervention strategies.

Main results: 

The project shall obtain the following results / outputs:
· A shared study on intervention strategies used on the market, in light of the experience gained by the participants;
· The definition of innovative seismic risk reduction strategies for masonry constructions through techniques with limited invasiveness and rapid execution;
· A database classifying the various intervention solutions identified by previous experiences of project partners; in order to define and classify the characteristics of the identified techniques: design criteria, execution methods, effectiveness, invasiveness, timing, costs, limits of applicability;
· An entire building in full scale built and tested for an optimization of these strategies, together with other accessory test samples;
· An analytical calculation application;
· Project reports and final dissemination material;
Project results and outputs address the target groups, such as those identified in the Programme documents:
- National, regional, local authorities, policy makers and public managers, in sight of resources saving and spending orientation.
- Educational institutions and public training bodies, in order to develop new skills to be delivered to students;
- Professional associations such as those of Engineers, Architects and Surveyors;
- Companies and SMEs in the construction sector for new job opportunities;
- Public bodies dealing with natural risks, energy, health and social inclusion.
- Civil protection and organizations dealing with environmental risk management;
- citizens living in areas at risk of natural disasters
