||The purpose of the project is an integrated package of amultiple set of modules that incorporate the expertise of earthquake and structural engineers, seismologists, geologists and architects as knowledge bases for site risk evaluation, model selection, vulnerability and damage assessment.
This general framework will be split in different parts to suit different scales (regional, sub-regional and local) including the collection of new and available data, and the development and integration of software tools inside the same Geographical Information System (GIS), together with Decision Support System (DSS) modules.
At the regional scale will be analysed the Toscana area (Italy) producing both risk maps and risk scenarios. At the sub-regional level for the Garfagnana area (Italy) will be carried out, besides slope vulnerability analysis, also technological vulnerability assessment. Vulnerable technological elements might produce induced hazards during and after earthquakes that will be part of the final risk assessment and scenarios. At the local scale, Barcelona city (Spain), the same type analysis will be performed adding the influence of soil conditions on hazard. Furthermore, at this local level, will be assessed the consequences of some special buildings failure on the town functionalism.
