Paper Title:
Seismic Behavior of some Basilica Churches after L’Aquila 2009 Earthquake
  Abstract

In this paper the seismic response of four church buildings in the l’Aquila April 2009 earthquake is analyzed. The buildings are: St. Giusta church, St. Maria di Collemaggio Basilica, St. Silvestro church and St. Pietro di Coppito church. The analyses are carried out by employing a “two-step” procedure suggested by the authors and already applied to similar case studies. The first step consists in three-dimensional linear analysis, while in the second step, two-dimensional non-linear analyses of macro-elements are carried out. The results coming from the two-steps, allow for understanding the observed damage and for approximately assessing the seismic level of the building.
