The Umberto I Gallery in Naples: The Influence of Corrosion Damage on the Seismic Performance of the Iron Roofing Structure
This paper is concerned with the results of the vulnerability assessment of the iron roofing structures of the Umberto I Gallery in Naples. The study is performed considering both the damage caused by corrosive phenomena and the seismic risk. In particular, the evaluation of the seismic performance has been carried out by developing a three-dimensional finite element model of the structure and calculating the thickness loss due to corrosion on the basis of suitable damage curves.
