Extended program
Soil and rock behaviour: recall of main mechanical and hydraulic characteristics, lab and field tests. Different risks of historic sites : seismicity, volcanism, subsidence, landslides, erosion, floods. AGI (1991) classification of ground-monument system. Types of damages : fractures, settlements, deformations, collapse, rotations, weathering of materials. The three steps of work : diagnosis, therapy, maintenance. Diagnosis: historic investigation and study, survey, identification of damages and of their causes. Therapy : choice of the remedial measure, execution. Maintenance and preservation : control and monitoring, maintenance and additional works. Types of active and passive works and their requirements : underpinning, grouting, drainage, soil and rock improvement, reinforcement, controlled displacements. A comparative study of measures on different monuments and sites. Monitoring : objective, instrumentation. Different case histories in Italy and abroad.
