Title: Vulnerability assessment of churches under earthquake hazard
Issue Date: 2013
Abstract: The development of a framework for the quantification of the seismic vulnerability of churchesis presented. Given the advantages of having different areas of expertise contributing for the assessment ofvulnerability, the proposed framework involves a multidisciplinary approach for the definition of the vulnerabilityof churches. The general scope and the conceptual definition of the proposed framework are discussedand it is established that vulnerability assessment must be carried out with respect to three fundamental components:the building, the collections and the building surroundings. Implementation details of the frameworkare then presented for the specific case of church heritage under seismic hazard. The applicability of the vulnerabilityassessment approach is illustrated using real case scenarios.
