Seismic Risk Evaluation and Dynamic Analysis of Structures

  • Seismic risk analysis of the project area.
  • Modelling and analysis of the local seismic response, evaluation of the dynamic parameters of the Maximum Credible Earthquake and of the Design Earthquake.
  • Finite element mathematical models for the study of dynamic interaction between a structure and its foundation.
  • Appraisal of liquefaction phenomena.

Physical Hydraulic Models

  • Definition of the hydraulic design features worth to be analyzed through physical models.
  • Preparation of technical specifications and planning of tests.
  • Assistance during tests, analysis and interpretation of results.

Mathematical Models

  • Finite element models (FEM) to calculate distribution of stresses in the structures, in the corresponding foundations and in the rock masses.
  • Finite element models for the static and dynamic analysis of loose material dams and underground works, adopting different behavior laws for soils and rocks.
  • Finite difference and finite element models for the analysis of seepage and consolidation problems.
  • Models for the study of free and pressure flow water discharge and transients in hydraulic systems.
