Earthquakes and Traditional Construction (Part 1) – February 25th 2021

Traditional structures located in earthquake regions have seismic mitigation strategies as part of their original construction or past repair – knowledge gained from centuries of trial and error. Modern engineered retrofit solutions must navigate modern and traditional methods and materials. Excessive strengthening may have unintended effects that may harm a building’s seismic resilience. How does one balance empirical and numerical methods for evaluation and seismic retrofit?

This is the first of an ISCARSAH-hosted webinar series focused on this and other critical topics of international cultural heritage preservation.

The International Scientific Committee on the Analysis and Restoration of Structures of Architectural Heritage (ISCARSAH) hosts an inter-ISC discussion on understanding traditional technology and craftsmanship with case studies where contemporary interventions can be informed by knowledge, skills and experience from traditional construction.

This is the first of an ISCARSAH-hosted webinar series focused on this and other critical topics of international cultural heritage preservation.
