Seismic risk assessment of 487 structures related to the road networks in the Veneto region and analysis of the network’s overall vulnerability in terms of socio-economic impact
337+150bridges analysed 2,000+1,300 km of road network analysed over the whole Veneto region
Management of the road network and its adaptation to the users’ growing qualitative and quantitative expectations involves a very complex series of activities, with repercussions, both direct and indirect, of primary importance and huge immediate social and economic impact. The request for infrastructural networks and systems is one of the main requirements currently asked of the production system and the socio-economic network. The analysis of the road network and its vulnerabilities was assessed, not only in terms of local damage to individual products, but also of social and economic impact on the businesses linked to the network.
