Progetto DPC-ReLUIS 2019-2021 – WP4 MARS Task 4.2 – Selezione di accelerogrammi per studi di fragilità
Nell’ambito delle attività del WP4-MARS "Mappe di Rischio e Scenari di danno sismico" (coordinatori proff. Sergio Lagomarsino e Angelo Masi), ed in particolare del Task 4.2 “Input sismico” (responsabile prof. Roberto Paolucci), sono stati individuati due set di accelerogrammi relativi, rispettivamente, a suoli non o debolmente amplificanti (i.e. categorie A/B secondo le NTC 2018) ed a suoli amplificanti (i.e. categorie C/D) da utilizzare in studi di fragilità su larga scala sul patrimonio edilizio.
Gli accelerogrammi sono liberamente utilizzabili per attività di ricerca.
September 12-16, 2022 – Bucharest, Romania
The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) of the 3rd European Conference on Earthquake Engineering & Seismology (3ECEES) organizes in the period 12-16 September 2022 in Bucharest, at the Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest (UTCB) and National Institute for Earth Physics (INFP) the “Young Seismologists and Engineers Training Course (YSETC)”.
The closing Workshop of the three-year DPC_ ReLUIS 2019-2021 project and the kick off of the new DPC_ ReLUIS 2022-2024 project was held on July 5-6 in the Aula Magna of the Faculty of Architecture "Valle Giulia" of the Sapienza University of Rome.
The Head of the Civil Protection Department, Fabrizio Curcio, the Deputy Head Titti Postiglione and the Director of Office II - Technical-scientific activities for the prediction and prevention of risks of the DPC, Fausto Guzzetti, brought their greetings to the whole community of the researchers of the ReLUIS network.
A moment of confrontation, motivation, proposals and ideas on seismic and structural engineering at the service of the country, with the researchers who participate in the activities of ReLUIS - Center of Competence of the Department of Civil Protection.
The works were preceded by the ReLUIS Researchers' Assembly. Two days with over 300 participants, many of whom in presence.
Lots of energy and skills on current issues of great interest to our country!
The ReLUIS Consortium, for the category of actions for the protection and safety of historical and architectural heritage, receives the award for the commitment in the areas of the country affected by the seismic events that have occurred since 2009. To receive the Award, representing the President of ReLUIS, Professor Edoardo Cosenza, Professor Andrea Prota, Director of the Department of Structures for Engineering and Architecture of the University of Naples Federico II. Thanks to all the ReLUIS network for taking part in the actions to protect and safeguard the artistic heritage of Central Italy. Click here for the video of the ceremony.
Also this year the ReLUIS consortium actively participates in the national communication campaign "Io Non Rischio", promoted by the Department of Civil Protection (DPC), together with the National Association of Public Assistance (ANPAS), the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) and the CIMA Foundation.
The Civil Protection Department, with a press release dated 24 September, officially announced the INR 2021 edition, which will take place on Sunday 24th, October 2021 only.
In particular, experts deployed by the ReLUIS Consortium will support civil protection volunteers in the awareness and dissemination campaign on the prevention of seismic risk, who will explain to citizens that prevention is possible and that nowadays methods, tools and techniques are available toeffectively reduce the effects of earthquakes.
More than 3400 civil protection volunteers will set up "Io non rischio" info-points in the main squares all over the country and "digital squares" to raise awareness among citizens about seismic, tsunami and flood risks.
This study, carried out following a short-term seismic risk assessment system developed by Reluis, compares the risks due to earthquakes and to COVID. Such analysis shows that during the first wave the risk due to the pandemic was comparable to that of a seismic sequence of about six degrees of magnitude.
