052326 - SEISMIC MICROZONATION AND URBAN PLANNING (I.C.)
The main objective of this course is to provide future civil engineers with a basic understanding of land use, urban and spatial planning considered as a risk mitigation measure.
Students will learn what urban planning is, how it developed, what are the basic tools it can count on and how to apply the latter to achieve safer urban and regional environments, especially in seismic areas.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
It is expected that students will get to understand how urban and spatial planning is developed, what are the constraints in implementing decisions and how planning can become part of an overall seismic risk mitigation strategy.
The following topics will be discussed.
Introduction: what is urban planning. SDGs, Land use planning Guidelines Unece, Sendai.
Land use and spatial planning in hazardous areas: issues, practices, state of art. The issue of spatial scales: global (GEM), European (Eurocode, G-Shake), National, local.
Tools for land use, spatial and urban planning as non structural mitigation measures
Risk dimensions on which planning act specifically for seismic zones
Use of microzonation in urban planning with examples I
Use of microzonation in urban planning with examples II
Planning across the disaster cycle: prevention, emergency (SUM and Cle), recovery and reconstruction
Historic centres: specific aspects of intervention in emergency (urban shoring), “the code of practice” in seismic retrofitting, building blocks vulnerability assessment and reduction
Intervention on risk factors: exposure. How to measure, what to measure. Relocation.
Intervention on risk factors: vulnerability. Physical and systemic vulnerability. The case of lifelines and critical infrastructures
Multi-hazard, multi-risk approach to urban and land use planning in seismic areas considering enchained events and seismicity linked to volcanic hazards.
Multi-hazard, multi-risk approach to urban and land use planning in seismic areas considering co-existing hazards (floods, climate change).
No requirements for this course.
Modalità di valutazione
Students will be evaluated on the basis of a final oral exam, in which students will be required to discuss the final exercise and will be asked questions regarding the theoretical aspects of geophysical analysis, microzoning models and applications, and urban and land use planning.
Evaluation criteria will include the mastering of a correct professional language and critical understanding of concepts and their application in the examples carried out during the course.
Students will have to demonstrate:
- the acquired knowledge about the topics of the course;
- their capabilities to apply the acquired knowledge and skills discussing examples, answering to questions and developing exercises;
- their capabilities to carry out technical analyses in a seismic area to support the implementation of their results in urban and land use plans.
