Seismic risk assessment and mitigation of hospital facility networks


To assess seismic vulnerability of existing European hospitals.
To establish the criteria and methods for their rehabilitation,
their retrofitting and for the design of new ones.

The following tasks are foreseen for the research:

Typical damage evaluation based on past earthquakes evaluation of
essential activities after an earthquake and consequences of
damage on first aid organisation. This task will be essentially
based on Italian, Greek and Portuguese earthquakes for Europe and
extra specific data will be obtained from America, Iran and

Evaluation of the fragility and vulnerability of existing
hospitals and methods for their reduction (based on real case
study hospitals for the different European countries). Possible
strategies for retrofitting and rehabilitation of existing

Evaluation of the vulnerability of the regional hospital system
(based on real case study regional systems). This task will be
based on two cases: a regional system in a moderate seismic risk
area (Southern France) and a regional system in central Italy.

A Guide will be obtained with recommendations concerning criteria
for seismic design and retrofitting of hospitals for earthquakes.
