The research project consists in the evaluation of the seismic vulnerability of the levees of rivers and channels, designed and realized in absence of seismic regulations or with reference to an out-of-date code. in-depth and extensive in situ and laboratory investigations will be developed, and all the available analytical procedures, inclusive of advanced dynamic procedures that require a detailed geotechnical modelling, will be applied. The aim is to make a comparison between their results and those obtained by employing simpler and more economic procedures, such as pseudo-static methods or simplified dynamic displacement methods. The seismic stability analysis of the embankments will be performed in the following main stages: a) definition of the geotechnical model; b) execution of numerical analyses. .
