Seminar – Prof. Lacidogna Giuseppe

6th December, 2018
Aula 3.4 h. 9.00 to 10.30

The SHM (Structural Health Monitoring) can give a reliable answer to the evaluation of the stability of structures under relevant risk of collapse.
The AE (Acoustic Emission) is today a consistent tool to give an appropriate support for this evaluation facing to catastrophic possible events for masonry
historical constructions.
The technology of AE is now mature: it is a message to the companies operating with NdT and to the persons that are responsible for the safety of citizen.
This is an invitation to the seminar:
“Damage Signals Generated by Civil and Historical Masonry Structures: An Acoustic Emission Analysis Approach”.

The Murico6 conference website is online!   [ FLYER ]

The aim of the Conference is to present and review the latest achievements in MODELING, TESTING, DESIGN, CONTROL and HEALTH MONITORING of masonry structures strengthened with composite materials.

Composite materials with continuous fibres embedded in a polymer or cementitious matrix are herein considered as strengthening techniques for masonry.
Seismic vulnerability mitigation, durability and temperature influence are suitable key words to be discussed at the conference.

Presentation of laboratory tests and case studies, described throughly and in details, are strongly encouraged.

The Conference is organized by AICO (Associazione Italiana Compositi per le Costruzioni, established in 1996, www.aico-compositi.it) hosted by the University ALMA MATER of Bologna, with patronage of Università IUAV di Venezia.

The previous editions were in Venice (Years 2000, 2004, 2009) hosted by Università IUAV di Venezia, in Ravenna (Year 2014) hosted by University ALMA MATER of Bologna and in Bologna (Year 2017) hosted by University ALMA MATER of Bologna.

Now, in 2018, the new edition will present innovative developments. The new field of FRCM (Fabric Reinforced Cementitious Matrix) seems very interesting for compatibility with ancient Masonry. New types of fibres are on the table: PBO, basalt and special steel and more.

The threat to Heritage due to earthquake encourages us to use the most appropriate technology to preserve the monuments.

The composites are a coherent answer.
