Masonry techniques

Les techniques de maçonnerie face aux séismes, de l’Antiquité à nos jours : perspectives d’études pluridisciplinaires

Masonry techniques in the face of earthquakes, from Antiquity to the present : Prospects for multidisciplinary studies

20 octobre 2017, Ecole Normale Supérieure

Organisation : Didier Combescure, Hélène Dessales, Maria Lancieri, Hélène Lyon-Caen.

Exploring the characteristics of heritage buildings in the face of earthquakes presents a crucial issue in risk-prone areas.

The aim of this international workshop is to assess the various methods of analysis. It will bring together archaeologists, seismologists, structural engineers and architects. These various specialists will cross their approaches in order to define new directions for the study and conservation of masonry buildings. In the framework of the ANR program RECAP, the workshop is organized at the Ecole normale supérieure, by the AOROC (UMR 8546), the Geology laboratory (UMR 8538), the AFPS and the IRSN.......
