Seismic vulnerability of a structure is defined as its intrinsic inclination to suffer some damage when an earthquake takes place. In efe-Prima-ce, we perform vulnerability studies through an accurate definition of seismic action and the characteristics of the structure.
efe-Prima-ce offers a complete and efficient study about the level of exposure of your structure to a seismic movement. This way, we can provide reliable information about the current condition of the construction. With his goal, we inspect structural elements such as strut beams; and non-structural ones such as short columns, structure characteristics, building location, and so on. With all this information, we let you know the level of structural vulnerability of your building.
Furthermore, we provide this study together with the suggestion of an optimum structural solution to guarantee full tranquility and safety about the performance of your construction as the time goes by.
