Introduction
A strategic structure could be subject to more than
one critical action during its service life.
A sustainable design needs to consider all the
possible critical actions which the structure could
be subjected to.
Given the uncertainty involved, the sustainable
design needs to be addressed based on a
probabilistic framework.

Multi-hazard structural
design/assessment
Structural engineering issue:
In case of multiple hazard, the
design/assessment criterion can be written as
 C  P(C | EQ) EQ  P(C | Wind ) wind  P(C | Blast ) Blast  ...   dm

The induced overpressure normally consists
of a positive decaying phase followed by a
weaker negative phase.
The most critical aspect with respect to the
safety of the structure regards progressive
collapse mechanisms on the damaged
structure.

Wind hazard
Critical issues:
• Wind direction;
• Low velocity
characterization;
• Spatial mesh refining;
• Season variation;
• Reliable hazard
characterization.
