SENIOR RESEARCHER AT EUCENTRE, PAVIA, ITALY
Barbara Borzi is Senior Engineer at Eucentre since May 2008. She joined Eucentre in September 2004 after a long period abroad, and is currently Head of the Vulnerability and Territorial Management Section.
She is involved in several project to which Eucentre is actively participating. Some examples in the following:
– Project amount € 360.000: Project leader in a project targeting the evaluation of seismic vulnerability of hospitals in Lombardia district. The results of the study have been shown implementing a toolbar in a GIS system (Geographical Interface System). The outcome of the vulnerability study has been used to develop a cost-benefit methodology to evaluate the intervention priorities on the base of regional funds available to mitigate the risk. The project started in January 2005 and was closed in July 2006;
– Research activity: Definition of mechanical methods to evaluate the seismic vulnerability on urban scale of masonry an reinforced concrete buildings. Barbara Borzi is first author of articles published in technical literature that describe SP-BELA (Simplified Pushover – Based Earthquake Loss Assessment);
– Research activity: Finite elements modelling of areas and geotechnical structures with DYNAFLOW, a finite element code giving a detailed description of non-linear behaviour of soil deposits;
– Research activity: Definition of capacity curves (pushover) through simplified approaches allowing to analyse huge datasets of buildings with a reasonable computational effort. Barbara Borzi has performed a complete validation of the capacity curve evaluation methods. Such methods have been employed for the definition of peculiar parameters of structural behaviour to be used in probabilistic models of seismic behaviour of existing buildings;
– Project amount € 48.500: Definition of probability distribution of characteristic structural behaviour parameters of buildings typical for the as built in Italy for Risk Management Solutions (RMS). The project started July 2006 and closed in October 2006;
– Project amount € 461.800: Project leader in a project aiming the seismic risk evaluation of a large petro-chemical industrial estate in Sicily (Priolo Gargallo) on behalf of the prefecture of Siracusa. Several evaluation studies have been performed targeting: vulnerability of structures and infrastructures, effects of local amplification and seismic hazard. The results of the studies have been combined to assess the seismic risk of the area. A method with three levels of detail has been adopted to identify structures towards which address the available funds for eventual assessment and seismic retrofit. The project started in January 2007 and closed in January 2009;
– Project amount € 605.167 €: Project leader of the project “Crop and reschedule regional laws in matter of earthquake engineering and informatised procedures to support the regional offices operating in the field of constructions and territorial management”. For this project the IT system SI-ERC (Sistema Informatico – Ediliza Regione Calabria) and SI-TERC (Sistema Informatico – Territoriale Regione Calabria) have been implemented. Such systems are accessible via web and allow on one side to upload design data on new structures, retrofitting of existing ones and microzonation studies, and on the other side allows officials to verify all inputs in a fully automatic way. The first information system, SI-ERC, integrates a procedure to upload all administrative and technical paperwork in a database. SI-ERC manages with all kind of structures and all kind of activity (i.e. new construction, retrofit, etc.) matching the Italian regulation (Norme Tecniche sulle Costruzioni, DM 14 gennaio 2008). SI-ERC uploads also design data through forms organized in web pages for buildings and bridges. These design data first feed routines then check the compliance of the design with the code regulation. The results of the check give a score to the structures and identify structures which are absolutely safe, absolutely unsafe and the ones that need an higher level of inspection. The second information system, SI-TERC, is used to transfer data on microzonation studies. The Department of Civil Protection has establish guidelines for the seismic microzonation which rule the documentation that needs to be produced as a function of the adopted level of detail. SI-TERC establishes the format of the results of microzonation study and verifies the compliance of the format. The project started in March 2008 and closed in June 2009;
– Project amount € 206.167: Project leader of the project “Planning of training courses in Seismic Engineering matters” Barbara Borzi has managed the training activities of practitioners and regional officials supposed to use IT systems SI-ERC and SI-TERC. The project started in June 2009 and closed in March 2010;
– Project amount € 188.056: Project leader of the project “Evaluation and reduction of seismic hazard of structures and infrastructures of Calabria District from a strategic point of view”. The project started June 2009 and closed in March 2012;
– Project amount € 336.000 in 2010-2011 and € 240.000 in 2012: Project leader of projects, the first and the second respectively, on behalf of Calabria District. The first project started November 15th , 2011 and came to an end December 31st , 2011. The second project is still running covering complete 2012. The projects required a continuous presence of Eucentre staff in the technical offices of Calabria District to give support in authorization of constructions using the SI-ERC IT system.
– Project amount 102.000 € with two integrations of 55.000 € and 20.000 €: Project leader to deliver SIS IT system (Sistema Informatico Sismica) due to a contract with Emilia Romagna District, active since December 2009, in which an IT module has been implemented to forward and manage construction paperwork. The module has been tested in October 2011. At the moment a package of specific checks on buildings classified as “low vulnerability” is being implemented, and for which IT checks only will be the viable mean to schedule human resources. This package has a further value of 50.000 €;
– Project value 97.500 €: Project leader of a project activated September 12th, 2011 for the acquisition of the IT system GIPE (Gestione Informatica Pratiche Edilizie) on behalf of Trento District. The delivery of a customized version of the GIPE system is foreseen 31 December 31st, 2012;

During this project a WebGIS application has been developed the base of which are data from the census on national scale up to date on school buildings. A further platform aiming to manage and monitor retrofit plans on school buildings undergone DPC’s approval and financing has been developed. A year extension, of a value of 90.000 €, is ongoing for the maintenance of the current WebGIS platforms: new data will be integrated in the platform for the evaluation or risk and real time damage scenario of schools and the monitoring platform in now in production;
– Project amount 1.647.000 €: Project leader of a project funded by DPC to assess the seismic risk on the global national road system. Started on February 2009 ended December 2013. During this project a WebGIS application has been developed to set intervention priorities on the base risk indexes of the road system infrastructures, and to identify the most secure path for all rescue teams involved in case of an event. The system works using a database of structural data that automatically computes/analyses bridges with a level of detail depending on the level of knowledge. For known bridges real non-linear finite element analyses are performed. A year extension, of a value of 250.000 €, is ongoing to increase the set of data that in the first five years was strictly limited to ANAS and Trento District. Concerning this matter data from Società Autostrade (Italian motorways) have been cropped and processed. Furthermore, the seismic risk related to landslides has been also computed. In the case of occurrence of an earthquake the platform can also upload data on the real damage of structures. As a consequence of observed damage the vulnerability models are updated;

SENIOR ENGINEER AT WTI GMBH, JÜLICH, GERMANY
Barbara Borzi has been working in Jülich as a project engineer. The main tasks covered by Barbara Borzi are mechanical and thermal FE analysis of mechanical systems.
The main projects undertaken were:
– Simplified FE Analyses of a reactor building house and new annexes for decommissioning. The FE analysis has been undertaken with ANSYS.
– Impact analyses of radioactive material containers falling on shock absorbing concrete. The main requirements of the project were to model the non-linear behaviour of absorbing concrete in order to match the results of experimental tests. The analyses have been undertaken with LS-DYNA.
– Analyses of a cask falling with different orientations on supports mounted on tracks and train wagons. The models of selected bounding conditions, simulating accidents, have been executed. The FE analyses have been undertaken with LS-DYNA. The track and the train wagon have been modelled in details, although the target of the analyses was to define the stress level produced by the impact on the container, to assure the container’s integrity in case of accident during transport.
– Study of the deceleration and associated stress level on nuclear fuel tubes, located in casks falling on the pavement with different orientation during transport. A number of hand calculations and FE analyses have been undertaken to provide the client with a range of possible stress conditions. Due to the uncertainty, typical of the behaviour of the fuel elements, a single result was in this case meaningless.
– Impact analyses of nuclear fuel element containers impacting a concrete foundation with different orientations. The project requirement was to identify the peak stresses in the container components, welds and bolts, in order to check whether the container integrity was guaranteed in case of accident. The analyses have been undertaken with LS-DYNA.
– Impact analyses of different casks falling on soil layers. The non-linear properties selected for the soil layers had to be validated against the results of some available experimental tests.
– Static analyses on a cask and its components, subjected to body forces corresponding to the deceleration produced by the cask impact. Thermal analyses on the same cask subjected to high temperature due to fire accident. The FE analyses have been undertaken with ANSYS.
– ANSYS seismic analyses of four piled up containers. The containers have been modelled as elastic, and contact elements have been used to model the compression and friction forces transferred between the containers and the bottom container and the soil.
– ANSYS static analyses of a basket for nuclear fuel elements. The basket is made by aluminium sheets orthogonal intersected through manufactured cuts in the sheets. The fuel elements are in still boxes located between the aluminium sheets. Finally, the aluminium sheets end in blocks located on the perimeter. The interaction between aluminium sheets, still boxes, and external blocks have been modelled through contact elements.
– Analysis of an aircraft impacting on a reactor house in a nuclear related facility. FE analyses have been undertaken with LS-DYNA.
NOVEMBER 1999 – FEBRUARY 2002
SENIOR ENGINEER AT ABS CONSULTANCY, WARRINGTON HEAD OFFICE, UK
Barbara Borzi has been working for EQE International (renamed ABS Consulting) at the Warrington Head Office as a senior engineer. Work has ranged from commercial to nuclear sectors, involving administrative and technical work; this included proposal writing, marketing activities, development of software for the inelastic analysis, development of routines for the post-processing of FE analysis results. The employer particularly appreciated Barbara Borzi’s experiences and capabilities in the field of non-linear FE analysis. Her particular skills lead to her promotion to Technical Leader of the Structural Analysis Section.
She also conducted business activities for ABS Consulting in Italy involving various Italian consultancies.
The main projects undertaken were:
– Software development for a cost-benefit model. A probabilistic interpretation has been given to the proposed model to evaluate the probability of a positive benefit from the retrofit of different types of building.
– Probabilistic assessment of structural capacity.
– Seismic upgrade of the buildings of a pharmaceutical facility in Egypt.
– Calculation check and definition of general guidelines for the assessment and retrofit of an industrial facility damaged during 17th August Koaceli (Turkey) earthquake.
– Assessment of a roadway running parallel to a dock wall, based on a method that accounts for the inelastic behaviour of reinforced concrete.
– Seismic assessment of dockside cranes.
– Calculation check of a steel building and a reinforced concrete pond to be built in Corlu, Turkey.
– Seismic assessment of equipments.
– Vulnerability study of industrial facilities in Japan.
– FE analyses and seismic assessment of the drainage system of a submarine dock wall. ABAQUS was adopted as FE software.
– Independent technical assessment of FE models of buildings and equipments subjected to seismic, impact and blast loads.
– Implementation of an adequate tool to model the inelastic behaviour of reinforced concrete elements. This tool uses ABAQUS for the FE analyses. It is also suitable for non-linear static to collapse analyses (i.e. push-over). The tool has been extensively validated comparing results of another independent software product, owned by Imperial College research group (INDYAS), as well as experimental tests on reinforced concrete elements and structures.
– Development of software capability for dynamic inelastic analysis of RC structures.
– Seismic assessment of two reinforced concrete buildings located in the vicinity of a dock wall. The assessment method adopted was based on the prediction of the inelastic behaviour of reinforced concrete structures by means of non-linear static to collapse analyses. FE analyses have been undertaken with ABAQUS.
– FE model of a reinforced concrete building of a nuclear facility. The aim of the study was to assess the structural capacity of the building subjected to high vertical accelerations. A non-linear time history analysis was performed using ABAQUS.
– Non-linear static to collapse analyses of typical frames of three reinforced concrete buildings damaged by 17th August Koaceli (Turkey) earthquake. Identification of the benefit of the proposed retrofit measures to improve the global seismic performance. The FE analyses were undertaken with ABAQUS.
– Seismic assessment of a masonry building. The assessment methodology was based on non-linear static to collapse analysis. In the FE model of the building the seismic behaviour of the masonry panels was modelled through a macro-element that accounts for the failure mechanism that might occur in a masonry panel. The building’s model was created using IDEAS and the FE analysis has been undertaken using ABAQUS. Comprehensive sensitivity studies have been undertaken to identify the influence on the assumptions adopted to model the non-linear behaviour of the panels.
– FE analyses of buildings in a nuclear related facility. The models of the buildings were created using IDEAS, and the FE analyses have been undertaken using ABAQUS. The analyses involved modal, response spectra and time history analyses. A routine was written to execute the code check of the structural elements. The output of the code check routine were plots of the FE model in which different colours highlighted elements that satisfied or failed the code check. Other routines have been developed to calculate the secondary response spectra from the results of the time history analysis.
– FE analysis of steel frames using ANSYS
– Definition of unconditional probability of failure under earthquake loads of industrial facilities. The fragility curves derived for typical components of petrochemical facilities have been convoluted with UK hazard curves to define the unconditional probability of failure and damage.
