Abstract

Historical buildings in seismically active regions are severely damaged by earthquakes, since they certainly were not explicitly designed by the original builders to withstand seismic effects. The assessment of their seismic safety is an important first step in planning the appropriate interventions for improving their pertinent resistance. This paper deals with the investigation of the seismic behaviour of the "Quinto Orazio Flacco" school. Its construction goes back to the early 20th century. The three-storey main masonry building has a M-shaped plan with maximum dimensions equal to 57.8m and 82.4m respectively in the transversal and longitudinal directions. In 1963 a new reinforced concrete building separated from the pre-existent masonry one as realized along its free perimeter. In order to simulate the actual seismic behaviour of the school, both non-linear static procedures and time history analyses are carried out, using detailed finite element models of the two buildings and suitable numerical procedures.
