4-7 September 2012
Seismic Vulnerability Assessment
organised by Prof. G. De Roeck
K.U.Leuven, Belgium
and Dr H. Friedl
AIT Austrian Institute of Technology, Vienna, Austria
Session Aims and Scope
Understanding structural response to earthquake loading is essential for the design of new structures and the assessment and seismic upgrading of existing structures. Field experiments will significantly enhance the fundamental knowledge of earthquake effects associated with the behavior of structures and geological layers, thereby reducing loss-of-life and economic losses from future earthquakes.

This special session will cover original and pioneering contributions, theory as well as applications on seismic vulnerability assessment and field testing methods. The objective is to bring scientists and engineers together and discuss the most recent developments and future trends in the targeted area.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Seismic vulnerability assessment
  • Identification of fragility functions
  • In-situ assessment of structures
  • Field testing techniques regarding seismic assessment
