Group HMS

Historical and Masonry Structures

The group consists of 25 PhD members, led by Paulo B. Lourenço and integrated in two clusters. Originally centred in “Historical”, i.e. existing buildings with cultural value, often referred to as architectural heritage (majority in masonry and timber, but also 20th century heritage), and “Masonry”, i.e. new masonry construction.

Overview

Group HMS - Historical Masonry

The group interests are wider, with relevant activity in timber structures, infrastructure management and geotechnical engineering. Conservation of the built heritage includes non-destructive testing and monitoring, advanced experimental characterization, sophisticated numerical simulation tools, earthquake engineering, repair and strengthening techniques, durability, management systems and life cycle analysis.

Re-use of structural masonry and timber aims at developing integral building solutions (all functional requirements) and modular solutions. Infrastructure management has a strong focus on assessment of bridges and transportation networks, including risk management and extreme events. Geotechnics has a focus on ground parameters and performance predictions, namely for rock masses, slope management and railways engineering.
