Programma sintetico The course aims to define strategies related to building resilience against climate change, focusing on the building envelopes resistance to extreme wind events. In particular, building and environmental components, namely potential flying debris, are considered as the vulnerable elements subjected by strong wind events. Therefore, the goal is to identify risk mitigation actions, by reducing building and environmental components vulnerability and to improve the resiliency of the built environment to extreme wind phenomena, as well as to prevent major losses to the properties affected and to guarantee higher safety to the people indoor and outdoor. Climate change is one of the issues of our time. Recent extreme wind events in Italy and Europe prove that our existing buildings are very vulnerable. The combination of increased wind actions, the old/historic building stock and meteorological events with different characteristics from the past are the main reasons of wind-induced damages. A risk analysis based on hazard, vulnerability and damage specific for the Italian urban environment will be illustrated. In particular, building and environmental components, namely potential flying debris, are considered as the vulnerable elements subjected by strong wind events. Therefore, it will be explained how it is possible to identify risk mitigation actions, by reducing the element vulnerability or the target characteristics. In particular, the course will focus on: - providing a theoretical solid background on the main technologies of the modern building envelope constructions, whose complete understanding is fundamental to analyse the failure mechanisms under wind; - identifying the built environment elements that can fail in the context of extreme wind events and providing their technological characterization in order to understand the reason of their failure. The fact that these elements are specific to the context (local building practices, age of the building stock, etc.) and differ from the elements that fail in other geographical areas will be considered; - evaluating advanced design strategies for the building envelopes, with detailed focus regarding their performances when subjected to extreme wind events, with a focus on specific infrastructures (hospitals, schools, etc.); - defining risk analysis and mitigation strategies and tools to mitigate environmental impacts and to prevent wind-induced damages to buildings, and the flying debris phenomenon to occur; - defining the consequences of flying debris impacts on buildings, with a specific focus on their faades and developing wind-borne debris resistance building envelopes; - defining a methodology for laboratory and on site test procedures to evaluate building envelope performances in extreme conditions. The course is connected with the Sustainable Development Goals n. 13 Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts and n. 11 Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable and with the Strategic Research Lines of ABC-PhD Risks mitigation strategies for built environment and Innovative design for architecture, spaces and services: health, safety, inclusion, education and emergency.
