It has been investigated the seismic risk of the buildings of public hospitals in Tuscany Region (about 5.128.000m3) under the management of fourteen sanitary companies. The seismic risk factor has been determined by seismic vulnerability of each construction, the seismic hazard depending from the location and the soil category, and the exposure factor due to the specific destination of each building. From the vulnerability factor, it has been possible to deduce an estimation of the peak ground acceleration capacity, while the location and soil category furnish the peak ground acceleration requested. The seismic risk factor has been then corrected to take into account the exposure factor of the several buildings. A proper classification, in terms of consistently groups, has been prepared to help the public administration to address the investment of public resources to consolidate the hospitals from seismic event.

Abstract

It has been investigated the seismic risk of the buildings of public hospitals in Tuscany Region (about 5.128.000m3) under the management of fourteen sanitary companies. The seismic risk factor has been determined by seismic vulnerability of each construction, the seismic hazard depending from the location and the soil category, and the exposure factor due to the specific destination of each building. From the vulnerability factor, it has been possible to deduce an estimation of the peak ground acceleration capacity, while the location and soil category furnish the peak ground acceleration requested. The seismic risk factor has been then corrected to take into account the exposure factor of the several buildings. A proper classification, in terms of consistently groups, has been prepared to help the public administration to address the investment of public resources to consolidate the hospitals from seismic event.
