Seismic Assessment by Numerical Analyses and Shaking Table Tests for Complex Masonry Structures: The Hagia Irene Case Study
The document concerns with the design and study of a large masonry model of Hagia Irene in Istanbul. The goals of experimentation were to acquire a deeper structural behaviour knowledge than that possible to acquire with numerical models only and to assess the effectiveness of the consolidation works foreseen on Hagia Irene. The scale factor chosen is equal to 1:10. The tests were arranged into two different phases: for not reinforced and reinforced scale model .The displacements of the markers placed on the structure were registered by an innovative monitoring technique measuring 3D motion time histories.
