Post-Doc : Preserving Egypt’s cultural heritage from earthquake damage through vibrating barriers (London)

Logo City University of London

The project aims to develop a multi-scale numerical model to simulate the dynamic response of heritage structures in Egypt to earthquake excitations, with the goal of evaluating the effect of Vibrating Barriers (ViBa) in mitigating the seismic response.
The objectives of the work carried out by the post holder include: (1) to develop numerical models for ancient structures in Egypt including soil-structure-interaction using a combination of finite element/boundary element techniques; (2) to conduct nonlinear dynamic analysis of the modelled structures under earthquake excitations using commercial software; (3) to investigate the use of Vibrating Barriers (ViBa) in mitigating the effect of earthquakes on these structures, and optimize the parameters of ViBa devices; and (4) to develop general design guidelines and analysis practices for the use of ViBa to protect cultural heritage structures from the damaging effect of earthquakes; and (4) to liaise with project partners exchanging data and information.
