Eucentre and, in particular, the Non-Structural Element section, organized the “Second International Workshop on Seismic Performance of Non-Structural Elements“, that will take place on May, 13, at the Collegio Riboldi, in Pavia.
In many earthquakes, losses from damage to non-structural building elements have exceeded losses from structural damage.
Failure of non-structural elements can limit severely the functionality of critical facilities, and can pose a significant safety risk to building occupants as well. However, the development of seismic design provisions for nonstructural components has lagged behind that of primary structural system, and research on the seismic design of non-structural elements is limited. With these in view, this Second International SPONSE Workshop is intended to promote communication and develop synergies among international researchers on the study of seismic performance of non-structural elements.
Those who wish to attend the Workshop are kindly invited to contact the Eucentre Secretariat, at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
