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;
  • To develop reliable numerical models of connections and substructures and make parametric assessment aimed at identifying interactions with repaired vertical and horizontal elements and defining optimized design procedures;
  • To derive from these analyses simplified and more complex models of connections and substructures to be implemented in global analyses;
  • To integrate the above mentioned models and carry out sensitivity study of buildings according to geometry, intervention techniques, stiffness of horizontal elements, connections;
  • To quantify building seismic performance and response parameters to be used in seismic assessment and design.

Subtasks

  • WP8.1: Dynamic modelling of structural elements, connections, and substructures;
  • WP8.2: Parametric study of buildings.

Deliverables

  • Simplified and complex models of in- and out-of-plane response to be implemented in global analyses (D8.1), delivered at PM18;
  • Development of reliable numerical models and assessment of connections and substructures (D8.2), delivered at PM24;
  • Parametric study of buildings according to geometry, intervention techniques, stiffness of horizontal elements, connections (D8.3), delivered at PM27;
  • Reliably quantification of building performance and response parameters for use in seismic assessment and design (D8.4), delivered at PM30.

This Workpackage is aimed at developing behaviour models for vertical and horizontal elements and for connections. Simplified models to be implemented into complex global analyses are developed (M5, PM24) and begins with PM9. Parametric analyses of buildings will be carried out to quantify performance and response parameters, to be used for assessment and design (M6, PM30).
