Core competencies

The proposed research settles in the framework of the seismic protection of equipment in critical facilities. Designated as critical facilities are the constructions that host essential public and economic functions or particularly hazardous activities, typically including: buildings with post-earthquake emergency functions (hospitals, government buildings, etc.); industrial facilities whose failure poses catastrophic risk to the environment or a large number of people (petrochemical plants, nuclear plants, etc.); high-technologies facilities with high-precision and high-value equipment (electronic factories, internet collocation facilities, etc.); industrial plants strongly affecting the economic system on a national or a regional scale. In all these cases, and even in the absence of structural failure, the equipment damage might strongly impact on the post-earthquake functionality, causing the loss of essential services and businesses, and pose a catastrophic risk to the environment or a large number of people.
The thesis aims at defining criteria and methodologies to harmonize the seismic design of equipment with the one of the structure, in a joint and coordinated effort to achieve the operational performance objectives prescribed to critical facilities by international seismic codes. This implies also the study of a monitoring system able to evaluate the seismic response of the equipment and its integrity.
