Present and future research activities
  • Probabilistic estimates of ground motion amplification due to local soil conditions. A
  • Effects of uncertainty in seismic hazard assessment on estimates of building portfolio losses
  • Development of spatially correlated fields of ground motion intensity measures that incorporate all available information (recordings and macroseismic intensity estimates).
  • Improving damage and loss characterization in buildings via the use of vectors of ground motion intensity measures to more efficiently predict structural response measures.
  • New paradigm for design, based on risk-targeted ground motion rather than exceedance of ground motion with fixed mean return period.
  • Calculation of nominal collapse probability for buildings designed in agreement with the Italian building code (NTC08)
  • Integration of the effects of failure of structural defense in the determination of flood hazard
  • Development of models for the generation of hydrologically and statistically consistent synthetic events
  • Aggregated vulnerability curves for territorial units and synthetic models of vulnerability, with particular regard to the content and indirect damage
  • Simplified methods for real-time representation of flood events from satellite images and real-time hydro-meteorological data
  • Models for Early Flood Loss Estimation
  • Development of models for earth observation and data processing
  • Dynamic land transformation analysis through Earth Observation
  • Geographic data management and development of multi-risk Copernicus downstreaming services (aimed in particular to coastal areas and floods)
