Seismic Protection of Fraeylemaborg

Project: ResearchPractical Project

Description

The building will be instrumented with accelerometers and displacement crack sensors. Additionally to the monitoring efforts, the structure will also be modelled in FE computer simulations in an effort trying to find out possible future response of the monument to strong earthquakes. The monitoring data will be combined with FE simulations in concluding the response of the structure to recursive induced seismic events.

Layman's description

The structure will be monitored real-time and reasons behind the damages will be found. Proposals for protecting the structure against earthquakes will be made.

Key findings

- Damage scenario of the building, in relation to the induced seismicity effects on structures in the region
- Establishment of a real-time structural monitoring tool
