NTC 2018 - Technics for the building

NTC 2018 identifies the minimum indices of seismic vulnerability that will have to be achieved in case of improvement of historical buildings and adaptation of existing school buildings. Anci summarizes the main innovations contained in the new NTC (decree of the Ministry of Infrastructures 17 January 2018).   

In addition to the minimum indices of seismic vulnerability for existing schools and historical buildings, which we deepen below, the note of the anci summarizes the other contents of the new NTC (decree of the Ministry of Infrastructure 17 January 2018): general technical construction criteria for the design, execution and testing of buildings and for their consolidation, general criteria for the verification of construction safety, surveys of land and rocks and technical specifications for the design, execution and testing of land support works and foundation works; general criteria and technical specifications for the design, execution and testing of special works and the protection of buildings against fire.

cigSeismic risk affects large areas of the national territory. The current legislation imposes precise obligations on gas transmission and distribution companies in order to ensure the operation of the managed infrastructure which, in the event of seismic events, must suffer limited damage, in order not to compromise the safety of the persons involved and to allow the populations concerned a rapid return to normality.

Il documento prodotto vuole offrire un primo contributo a quanti operano nella programmazione degli interventi sul patrimonio ospedaliero, riassumendo le dimensioni fondamentali dell’analisi e offrendo alcuni riferimenti per un’ulteriore conoscenza a supporto di scelte e comportamenti. Per una comunità colpita da un evento sismico l’ospedale, macrostruttura affollata da migliaia di persone aventi capacità reattive diversissime, è sede tra le più esposte e sensibili, ma è anche organo vitale, cui vengono richieste, in condizione di stress, risposte pronte ed efficaci per contenere i danni del trauma sismico. Se l’ospedale è in grado di assorbire la forza d’urto del sisma e di continuare a offrire conforto medico, la comunità ritrova uno dei suoi capisaldi, su cui attestare la reazione e la ripresa. L’appropriata protezione di un nodo nevralgico come quello ospedaliero é correlata al livello delle conoscenze disponibili: la previsione delle prestazioni, strutturali e non, si differenzia in base alla magnitudine e alla frequenza degli eventi sismici attesi, le capacità di resistenza dei componenti e dei sistemi, sia edilizi che impiantistici, si discostano dalle ipotesi dei modelli quanto più questi semplificano la realtà esistente.

"Direttiva Seveso III" - Legislative decree 26th of June 2015, n°105

With LA“DIRETTIVA SEVESO III” – DECRETO LEGISLATIVO 26 GIUGNO 2015, N°105  

The Community Directive 2012/18/EU (Seveso III) on the control of major accident hazards involving dangerous substances has also been implemented in Italy. This Directive on the control of major-accident hazards completely replaces Directives 96/82/EC (cd. “Seveso II”) and 2003/105/EC and their transposition decrees, legislative decrees 334/99 and 238/05.

The updating of Community legislation on the control of major-accident hazards related to certain dangerous substances is mainly due to the need to adapt the rules to the recent change in the classification system of substances chemical.
This change was introduced by EC Regulation No. 1272/2008 on the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures, with a view to harmonising the system of identification and cataloguing of chemicals within the European Union with that adopted at international level within the UN (GHS – globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals).

3.2– seismic risk analysis, conducted in the same way as incidental analysis, with the objective of determining whether the possible seismic vulnerability of buildings and installed structures could lead to an increase in incidental scenarios already identified, or new installations or protective devices likely to affect such scenarios are taken out of service.

With the publication of the new standard for the classification of lifts as regards standard EN 81-77 promoted by CEN/TC10 culpably too neglected in recent years, relating to lift to reduced seismic vulnerability. This is all the more sensitive when we consider countries such as Italy, and mention only Europe, Greece, Romania, Portugal, Turkey or parts of Spain and France. This legislation requires the lift to be designed, designed and produced taking into account the seismic degree of the area in which it is installed.

G.U. 29th of October 2003 Order of the President of the Council of Ministers 3274/2003

GUG.U. del 29/10/2003  Ordinanza del Presidente del Consiglio dei Ministri 3274/2003

First elements in the matter of general criteria for seismic classification of the national territory and technical regulations for construction in seismic zone.

The art of it. 2 paragraph 3 quoted: It is obligatory to proceed to verification, to be carried out by the respective owners, in accordance with the rules set out in these Annexes, buildings of strategic interest* and infrastructure works whose functionality during seismic events is of fundamental importance for civil protection purposes, both buildings and infrastructure works that may be relevant in relation to the consequences of a collapse. The verifications referred to in this paragraph shall be carried out within five years of the date of this Order and shall cover as a matter of priority 
buildings and structures located in seismic zones 1 and 2 as defined in Annex 1.

* All public meeting places such as hospitals, shopping centers, cinemas, supermarkets, kindergartens, schools, museums, hotels, restaurants, sports halls, stadiums, theatres, post offices, gyms, churches, places of worship, are interested in a periodic review of the load-bearing elements of the building with structural expertise by qualified professionals (structural engineers).

To date, despite the fact that this order dates back to the year 2003, we note the fact that our country still lacks a civil conscience“”. Those responsible for these structures do not realize that they are primarily involved in disasters and/or disasters of both seismic and hydrogeological nature.
