Numeria at 3rd SPES Summer Seminar-Lisbon_Portugal

Alberto Dusi and Elena Manzoni, our technical directors, speak up at SPES.

The SPES Summer Seminars are a joint initiative of the Portuguese Society of Earthquake Engineering (SPES), the National Laboratory of Civil Engineering (LNEC) and the company PRETENSA, aiming at the dissemination of themes in the area of ​​Seismic Engineering.

LNEC - Main Auditorium - October 22nd and 23rd 2018

 

In this 3rd Seminar, two themes will be considered relevant to the building existing in Portugal: What can be done to reduce the seismic vulnerability of buildings in masonry as well as the built historical heritage and how to reinforce existing concrete buildings in Portugal through energy dissipation.

The first day will be devoted to strengthening and mitigating the effects of earthquakes on historic buildings and masonry. An eminently practical approach will be taken with cases in Portugal, Italy and other parts of the world. In addition to conventional solutions, basic insulation applications will be analyzed in historic buildings in Italy.

The second day will be dedicated to the reinforcement of existing building in reinforced concrete using energy dissipating devices. It will present a panorama of the built with these characteristics in Portugal and its vulnerabilities. The use of conventional techniques, as well as the use of energy dissipation devices to reduce their seismic vulnerability.
