Projects & Results




The objective of the project SISMOVALP is to improve seismic hazard management in the Alps and to reduce vulnerability through better information.




CDROM: Generic Alpine Valleys Characterization

The project has built a transnational database which can be used in the whole alpine space for seismic hazard studies. Representative alpine valleys shapes and earthquake scenarios are defined and the associated vibrations are calculated.

Site effects

This synthesis presents all about the site effects linked to earthquakes. How to understand, model and prevent site effects?
