Title: History, observation and mathematical models in the seismic analysis of the Valadier abutment area in the Colosseum
Issue Date: Nov-1995
Series/Report no.: 38/5_6
Keywords: Historical records
Roman Colosseum
seismic behaviour
numerical analysis
Abstract: The present work aimed to outline the need to investigate different fields of research to interpret the structural behaviour of a monument as complex as the Colosseum. It is shown how defining the numerical models first. then refining them, followed by interpretation of results. is strictly linked with the inforination gathered from historical records and observation of the ~nonumenta s it is today. The study is confined to the area of the Valadier abutment. analysing its state and its seismic behaviour before and after the XIX century restoration using different ilumerical tools, from the elastic modal analysis to the non linear step by step time history direct integration. The procedure comparati\ely evaluates the reliability in the interpretation of the results and identifies future lines or research.
