First STABLE Summer School

The First Summer School of STABLE has been organized by Frederick University between the 17st and the 27th of June 2019, in Nicosia (Cyprus).

The Summer School is an opportunity for Consortium members, PhD Students and Specialists in the filed to openly gather and exchange know how on the topic at hand.

During this summer school, topics like the seismic risk assessment of historic buildings, models for structural stability, damage assessment simulation tools, advanced remote detection, in-situ monitoring technologies, geotechnical risk and the use of WebGis applications for mapping and long-term monitoring of cultural heritage buildings where presented and discussed by all the participant in a productive conversation. Practical training where also held as part of the Summer School, in particular training with ERDAS Imagine photogrammetry and ERDAS Imagine UAV Detection softwares.

After the end of the Summer School, STABLE  partners met for a progress meeting, during which they discussed deadlines, secondments and technical issues.

STABLE Kick Off - Athens 2019

From January 8th to 10th the meeting was held at the NTUA premises (university campus), in the administrative building and at the PLATON premises of the TITANIA Hotel (city center of Athens). The use of interferometric data was discussed; on geotechnical risk analysis as input for the analysis of seismic risk.NTUA presented its approach and the basic idea is to tackle the “medium-scale” urban area of ​​interest for cultural heritage, including the historic city centers.Three options for structural analysis:1) Detailed and useful mechanical method for individual buildings2) Indirect method. It is a simplified method useful for medium-term scale.3) A combination of the first two options that provide the mechanical method used for a few standard types of buildings and applied to the indirect method to validate larger areas.
