 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'Worldwide, major earthquakes have caused tragic catastrophes with unparalleled losses in human life and property where inadequate design and construction practices have been identified as the major culprit. Thus, for mitigating the seismic risk, high quality training and education of professionals and researchers in analysis and design of structures has become of paramount importance. The proposed Network aims at promoting the research cooperation on the design of earthquake-resistant structures by creating strong synergies between research and practice among six countries under seismic threat: Greece and Cyprus (EU), Chile, India and Mexico (S&T) and Armenia (ENP). Bridging the gap between the Earthquake Engineering and Computational Mechanics scientific communities with the exploitation of the scientific potential and the complementary expertise of human resources of the Network, the research teams will further deepen, strengthen and advance their activities by addressing five major disciplines of Earthquake Engineering: (i) Stochastic characterization of seismic ground motions, for simple and accurate generation of synthetic accelerograms; (ii) Modeling and analysis of structures under seismic loading, aiming to validate and advance the cutting edge of computational methods; (iii-iv) Reliability- and performance-based seismic design, working towards a fully probabilistic framework for holistic structural design; and (v) Analysis and design of base-isolated structures, addressing the needs of high performance designs for critical facilities. For each topic, training programs will be provided through joint workshops, participation in thematic conferences and attendance of a specialized international MSc course hosted at the coordinating institution. Combining such focused training with diverse expertise and ensuring a strong connection between research and practice, the Network is set to have a lasting impact, pushing forward the boundaries of science in the field.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Experts from earthquake-prone EU nations Cyprus and Greece are helping engineers, researchers and scientists from developing nations to build better structures. This will lessen the chances of casualties and destruction when an earthquake hits.
