Abstract

The present report aims at contributing to a harmonized approach in Europe for damage assessment, short term countermeasures for damage limitation and evaluation of the post earthquake usability of ordinary buildings. It results from the Italian long-term and recent experiences (Assisi, San Giuliano di Puglia) on post-earthquake assessment and tagging of buildings and is considered important as there has been a sustained progress in Italy in this field, which can be shared with other European / Mediterranean countries with similar constructions.
