(EVG1-CT-2001-00040) is funded by the RESEARCH DG of the
European Commission, within the context of
the Environment Programme "Global Change and Natural Disasters"
a large physical laboratory (Test Site), only 30
km distant from Thessaloniki, in northern Greece.
EUROSEIS-RISK project includes integrated experimental and
theoretical research studies in seismology, applied geophysics, engineering seismology,
earthquake engineering, soil dynamics
and structural engineering. More specific topics are on seismic hazard
assessment, monitoring of seismicity, design of 2D and 3D soil models for
site response evaluation, 2D/3D theoretical computations, site effects, SSI effects in the presence of buildings or
bridges yielding, validation of retrofitting techniques, etc.
