Project ID: 244229
Funded under: FP7-ENVIRONMENT


This is the final report of the PERPETUATE project which received funding under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The main aim of the project intended to develop European Guidelines for evaluation and mitigation of seismic risk to cultural heritage assets, with innovative techniques for the seismic strengthening of historical buildings and the preservation of artworks (frescos, stucco-works, statues, battlements, banisters). The report begins by outlining the full methodological path used for the assessment of cultural heritage assets. The report then defines the classification of the assets, the definition of performance limit states specific for the cultural heritage assets, the evaluation of seismic hazard and soil-foundation interactions, among others. The majority of this report is devoted to the impact of the project and names the structures analysed.
