Objectives
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: THE COURSE IS AIMED TO MAKE STUDENTS ABLE TO ESTIMATE THE SEISMIC HAZARD AT A GIVEN SITE AND TEST THE POSSIBILITY OF RESONANT SEISMIC WAVE AMPLIFICATION. TO FULFILL THE GOAL, STUDENTS WILL LEARN HOW TO USE OPEN-SOURCE SOFTWARE AND PUBLIC DATABASES, AND TO RECORD AND ANALYZE AMBIENT VIBRATIONS.

KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING: ITALIAN LAWS RELATED TO EARTHQUAKE-PROOF BUILDING. SEISMIC SITE EFFECTS. SEISMIC MICROZONATION. H/V TECHNIQUE FOR ESTIMATING RESONANT FREQUENCIES OF SEISMIC WAVES. OPEN-SOURCE SOFTWARE FOR THE ANALYSIS OF SEISMIC RECORDS.

TRANSFERABLE SKILLS: ESTIMATING THE GROUND ELASTIC RESPONSE SPECTRUM ON THE BASIS OF ITALIAN LAWS. PRODUCTION OF SEISMIC MICROZONATION MAPS. USE OF INSTRUMENTS FOR RECORDING AMBIENT VIBRATIONS. ANALYSIS OF AMBIENT VIBRATIONS FOR ESTIMATING RESONANCE FREQUENCIES.
Prerequisites
BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF DATA ANALYSIS AND SEISMIC HAZARD ARE MANDATORY PREREQUISITES.
Contents
SEISMIC ACTION IN THE ITALIAN "NORME TECNICHE PER LE COSTRUZIONI". SEISMIC HAZARD AND ESTIMATE OF THE ELASTIC RESPONSE SPECTRUM ON THE BASIS OF THE ITALIAN "NORME TECNICHE PER LE COSTRUZIONI". SOFT MEDIUM AND TOPOGRAPHIC CORRECTIONS TO THE SEISMIC HAZARD. USE OF THE TROMINO (TRADEMARK) SEISMOMETER FOR VIBRATION MONITORING. VIBRATION ANALYSIS FOR STUDYING GROUND AND BUILDING RESONANCE FREQUENCIES.
