Seismic assessment of masonry buildings accounting for limited knowledge on materials by Bayesian updating
Several building codes propose methodologies to account for epistemic uncertainties in the seismic assessment of masonry buildings by selecting a knowledge level and reducing material strengths byExpand

Masonry Italian Code-Conforming Buildings. Part 2: Nonlinear Modelling and Time-History Analysis
TLDR
Unreinforced masonry buildings designed by means of nonlinear static analysis turned out to be characterized by values of the intensity measure associated to the collapse condition lower than the one of buildings resulting from other design methods, in particular the linear ones. Expand

Consideration of modelling uncertainties in the seismic assessment of masonry buildings by equivalent-frame approach
Abstract The choice of modelling strategy and analysis options has a significant influence on the results of the seismic assessment of existing buildings and therefore it is very important to have anExpand

DEFINITION OF MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF EXISTING MASONRY ACCOUNTING FOR EXPERIMENTAL KNOWLEDGE BY BAYESIAN UPDATING
The current approach of the Italian and European building codes to account for knowledge-based uncertainties in the seismic assessment of masonry buildings consists in selecting a knowledge level andExpand

RINTC PROJECT: NONLINEAR DYNAMIC ANALYSES OF ITALIAN CODE-CONFORMING URM BUILDINGS FOR COLLAPSE RISK ASSESSMENT
Abstract. This paper deals with the computation of the collapse risk of new masonry buildings designed according to the Italian Building Code. Companion papers describe the overall EUCENTRE-ReLUISExpand

SEISMIC ASSESSMENT OF MASONRY BUILDINGS CONSIDERING DIFFERENT UNCERTAINTIES
This works moves from considerations about the inadequacy of the approach currently adopted by the Eurocode 8 Part 3 and the Italian building code for the seismic assessment of existing buildings.Expand
EVALUATION OF THE EFFECT OF MODELING UNCERTAINTIES ON THE SEISMIC RESPONSE OF EXISTING MASONRY BUILDINGS
An accurate seismic assessment of existing masonry buildings requires consideration of the sources of uncertainty and their effect on the seismic response. Among them, uncertainties related withExpand
