Safety and Durability of Structures Laboratory
The research activities of the Safety and Durability of Structures Laboratory (SDOA) focus on the managing of structures, the mechanisms degrading their reliability and their durability as well as the actions which affect these structures. These research activities especially deal with auscultation, assessment, maintenance, repair and management optimization of these structures. The major topics are organized according to three axes:
- Pathologies of structures (especially concrete and masonry structures).
- Techniques of structural management.
- Structures vulnerability to accidental or natural hazards (including earthquake and climatic events).
