Dr Michalis Fragiadakis
Dr Michalis Fragiadakis
Dr Michalis Fragiadakis is Associate Professor at the School of Civil Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece and Visiting Professor at EMGCU/IFSTTAR laboratory of Gustave Eiffel University. He received his PhD from NTUA and holds MSc degrees from NTUA and Imperial College, London. His research activity focuses on structural engineering and on the seismic risk assessment of structures and lifelines.

He will give a conference on: Reliability and health assessment of structures: past work and future perspectives

Structural risk and health assessment tools are essential for determining the condition of a structure and prioritize interventions. The problem is today critical, since modern infrastructure is getting old while various hazards, natural, or man-made, are a threat to the
built environment. Structures of cultural heritage are also critical for the society and need to be protected. The presentation will focus on performance-based, decision-making tools that can smarty combine data from measurements and simulations. Such tools are today at the forefront of structural engineering. The assessment of different systems will be discussed, giving emphasis to building, bridges, monuments, and offshore wind turbines, thus providing a unified multiple hazard assessment framework. Such tools are today at the forefront of structural engineering since they are essential for increasing the resilience of a structure/system through proactive measures that reduce either the risk, or the consequences, of structural failure.
