Work accomplished Seismic and Static security evaluation
Project description

An evaluation of the static and seismic safety of the building was carried out. Widespread unsoundness was found by way of a static structural analysis of the finished elements and a non-linear structural analysis (Pushover).
With the aim of acquiring more information (LC2) on the basis of the definitions in Chapter 8 of the Circular 617/09 the following was carried out:

  - a complete dimensional survey with a graphic restoration of the planimetry, sections and elevations of the structure in scale 1:100;
  - a structural survey (framing and stratigraphy) of all examined work including the foundation;
  - a study of the samples of the main structural elements (reinforced concrete columns, main walls, ceilings and floors and staircases) and of construction details (for the walls: linking of floors and ceilings to walls, types of walls and construction and stratigraphic characteristics; for the reinforced concrete: samples of pillars) with the aim of deepening our knowledge of the building's structure and thus to better judge objectively the static safety of the building;
  - an instrumental survey in situ and in the lab to determine mechanical characteristics (resistance, stiffness etc) of the soil foundation by way of a dynamic penetrometric test (DPSH), a seismic survey (MASW); a study of the main load bearing structural elements main walls load bearing tests with flat jacks (single and double);  mineral-petrographic analysis of the mortar making up the facing wall perimeter (done in the lab); testing of elements in reinforced concrete to evaluate the resistance by way of SONREB) by which the parameters were correlated by measurements carried out with sclerometric and supersonic tests.
