Seismic vulnerability analysis and verification of static suitability

Seismic vulnerability analysis and verification of static suitability

The project involves the verification of the static suitability of nine school buildings of different ages located in Brescia.
We did inspection in each school, in order to detect the geometry and the layout of the structural elements. After the drafting of the survey, tests and surveys were carried out to identify the materials, the geometric and mechanical characteristics of the most significant structural elements of the building.
After the study phase, we did the necessary load tests on the most significant structural elements to evaluate their efficiency.
Accumulated this amount of material we prepared the static suitability certificate, including the reports on the operation carried out.
If the results were not corresponding to current legislation, the parts of the building that do not meet the static checks were identified in the final report.
The static suitability shows a transcription that translates the maximum allowable load into a limitation on the number of occupants per classroom.
