Abstract

A description of the methodology for static and dynamic analysis using finite element modeling and it's application in a large and old structure will be described in this paper. The model we used for the analysis includes all the specific characteristics of the old structure. The results were compared with in - situ measurements using accelerometers and found in good agreement. 1 Introduction The description of the study for static and dynamic sufficiency of a large and old structure named "Building of Merarchia" is the main subject of this paper. A methodology was developed for an application leading to an accurate evaluation of the existing condition of the old structure. The use of advanced
