Construction Management for structural exoskeletons for reducing seismic vulnerability of existing buildings and supporting thermal insulation coatings
Thesis type MASTER THESIS
Description Mediterranean countries such as Italy are characterized by a territory at high seismic risk both in terms of intensity and frequency and in terms of the damage caused to building stock and vulnerability. Moreover, in European countries themselves, buildings are responsible for about 36 percent of carbon emissions related to fossil fuels, especially in residential buildings from the period 1945-1975, which in Italy, for example, account for 65 percent of the total building stock, a significant amount of thermal energy is lost through the envelope.
In this scenario, considering both the EU target of reducing energy consumption, the cumulative climate emergency, and the need to reduce the seismic risk of the building stock, the seismic-energy retrofit coupling of existing buildings is an urgent issue.
This thesis proposal is dedicated to the development of new solutions for the optimization of the off-site construction of the structural elements constituting the reinforcing exoskeleton, with a view to identifying the key parameters for the management of the construction process in the plant, the management of transport and all the assembly stages.
Integrated management, through BIM information models will be able to use the support of tools such as virtual design construction to evaluate constructability on a case study.
Required skills Building Information Modeling, Virtual Design Construction
