Objectives

  • To derive from experimental tests and detailed numerical models in WP4 & 5 simplified and more complex models for in and out-of-plane behaviour of vertical elements, in-plane behaviour of floors, and longitudinal and transversal response of vaults to be implemented in global analyses;
  • Calibrating innovative measuring devices or systems during laboratory tests for their application on real case studies;
  • To identify the real structural behaviour of simple elements or entire buildings to assist the tasks of: i) creating reliable structural models; ii) updating existing structural models; iii) minimizing the interventions; iv) evaluating the execution of intervention during their application; v) follow a step-by-step procedure in the application of interventions;
  • Applying the most successful envisaged intervention techniques on case studies and validating the proposed methodologies on real buildings;
  • Embed instrumented dissipative device in case studies;
  • Define long-term effectiveness and quality assessment procedures for the interventions. 

Subtasks

  • WP9.1: Calibration of techniques;
  • WP9.2: Real case study application.

Deliverables

  • Simplified and complex models of in- and out-of-plane response to be implemented in global analyses (D8.1), delivered at PM18;
  • Individuation of proper buildings where applying the new technologies (D9.1), delivered at PM18;
  • Development and calibration of local and global monitoring techniques during tests on elements, connections and buildings (D9.2), delivered at PM18;
  • Prototype intervention design and application and continuous monitoring (D9.3), from PM 15 through PM33;
  • Report on the use of monitoring as knowledge based assessment and early warning tool (D9.4), PM33;
  • Report on real case studies, with definition of strategies for control of adequacy and quality level of interventions (D9.5), PM36.

In this Workpackage it's developed and applied the knowledge-based assessment procedures to real case studies, (begins with PM12). It is the final demonstration about the feasibility of the envisaged solutions and of the entire integrated methodology in real site conditions. It will thus represent a very important part of the last milestone of the project (M7, to be reached at PM36).
