Project title: Seismic vulnerability assessment and design of strengthening interventions for a historical structure: Japoce’s Palace in Campobasso (Italy)
Tags: Earthquake Engineering, Seismic vulnerability
The S2X Team has worked as an external consultant for the seismic vulnerability assessment and design of strengthening interventions of a historical structure, Japoce’s Palace in Campobasso, Italy. It was a very challenging case study due to the stratification of structural interventions over the centuries, which resulted, in particular, in a number of composite sections consisting of different materials interacting each other. This required the development of a customized software for capacity verifications.
The S2X Team has been also responsible for the preparation and execution of the investigation plan, including a complete geometric and structural survey of the structure.
