Description & Coverage
Description:

Rehabilitation of heritage monuments provides sustainable development and cultural significance to a region. The most sensitive aspect of the refurbishment of existing buildings lies in the renovation and recovery of structural integrity and public safety.

The Handbook of Research on Seismic Assessment and Rehabilitation of Historic Structures evaluates developing contributions in the field of earthquake engineering with regards to the analysis and treatment of structural damage inflicted by seismic activity. This book is a vital reference source for professionals, researchers, students, and engineers active in the field of earthquake engineering who are interested in the emergent developments and research available in the preservation and rehabilitation of heritage buildings following seismic activity.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Masonry Materials
  • Monument Restoration
  • Passive Seismic Protection
  • Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis
  • Restoration Materials Technology
  • Structural Control Techniques
  • Structural Damage
  • Structural Rehabilitation

Editor Biographies
Panagiotis G. Asteris is an associate professor and head of the Computational Mechanics Laboratory at the School of Pedagogical & Technological Education, Athens, Greece. He received BS, MS and PhD degrees in civil engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Athens, Greece. His research focuses on computational structural engineering, applied and computational mathematics and masonry material and structures. Professor Asteris is the author/editor of three books in structural engineering. He is also the editor-in-chief of the Open Construction and Building Technology Journal, Bentham Science Publishers, and has authored more than 80 articles published in various conference proceedings and scholarly journals.
Dr. Vagelis Plevris is an Associate Professor at the Department of Civil Engineering and Energy Technology of the Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences in Oslo, Norway. He holds a 5-year Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) with specialization in Structural Engineering. He also holds an MSc from NTUA on "Structural Design and Analysis of Structures", a Master in Business Administration (MBA) from Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB) and a PhD from the School of Civil Engineering of NTUA. The title of his Doctoral Thesis was "Innovative Computational Techniques for the Optimum Structural Design Considering Uncertainties". His research interests include (i) Finite Element Method (FEM); (ii) Static and Dynamic Analysis of Structures with FEM; (iii) Earthquake Engineering; (iv) Optimum Design of Structures; (v) Reliability and Probabilistic Analysis of Structures; and (vi) Neural Networks and their Applications in Engineering.
