Title: A methodology for the vulnerability assessment of heritage buildings and contents under catastrophic hazard
Issue Date: 2012
Abstract: The development of a framework for the quantification of the cultural heritage vulnerabilityfor different hazard sources is presented. Given the advantages of having different areas ofexpertise contributing for the assessment of vulnerability, the proposed framework involves amultidisciplinary approach for the definition of heritage vulnerability. The general scope andthe conceptual definition of the proposed framework are discussed and it is established thatvulnerability assessment must be carried out with respect to three fundamental components:the building, the collections and the building surroundings. Implementation details of theframework are presented for the specific case of church heritage under seismic hazard. Theapplicability of the vulnerability assessment approach is illustrated using a real case scenario.
