The Minisymposium aims to bring together researchers with different expertise such as structural mechanics, geotechnical engineering, structural dynamics, earthquake engineering, geomechanics, materials science, computational and numerical methods, experimental tests, history of constructions to discuss damage patterns modelling, including new approaches, analytical, numerical and phenomenological models, able to capture different loading and displacement situations.
Topics of particular interest include but are not limited to:
• soil-structure interaction
• ambient vibrations
• dynamic in-situ tests
• uncertainties identification
• effects of foundation settlements
• interaction with adjacent constructions
• damage identifications techniques and inverse analyses
• structural health monitoring
• coupled building–foundation systems
