Abstract

This article presents a study carried out in the Nera's Valley of Umbria, Italy, funded by the ReLUIS Programme. The aim is to identify recurring collapse mechanisms for historic religious buildings, which, while providing important information for the improvement of their seismic performance, will be useful for a wide range of masonry constructions with similar geometrical parameters, traditional construction techniques and constituent materials. Three earthquake-damaged churches were studied and the collection and analysis of the data obtained from the survey have been discussed in order to gain information regarding their structural behavior. This has been conducted according to some commonly recognized vulnerability indicators.
