Palazzo Veneziano and
Client: Comune di Ravenna
The Ravenna Town Hall (Palazzo Comunale di Ravenna) looks onto the main square of the city, Piazza del Popolo. The project concerned the seismic vulnerability analysis and interventions for mitigating the structural defects of the monumental complex where the Municipal Residence of the Municipality of Ravenna is located.
A global seismic analysis and local kinematic analyses were run to evaluate the safety of the complex. The two most critical zones were then subjected to further sophisticated analyses utilizing a nonlinear total strain crack constitutive bond.
