Seismic Monitoring of Historical Buildings in Groningen

Project: Research



This project is devised for establishing pilot case studies in the Groningen gas field area for i) developing methodologies of proper evaluation of the monitoring data, ii) for establishing standards of structural monitoring in case of induced earthquakes, and for iii) increasing awareness among professionals on “why” and “how” to do structural monitoring in historical buildings in the region. The main focus of the project is both monitoring and also interpretation of results from the monitoring activities, which are the effects of maintenance and/or structural operations as well as the added value of monitoring in protecting historical buildings.
