Seismic isolation testing for artifacts of Patras Archeological Museum

[ Responsible: Assoc. Prof. S. Bousias ]

Replicas of statues from the archeological museum of Patras were tested on the seismic simulator of the Department of Civil Engineering to evaluate the effectiveness of a new isolation/dissipation system for protecting free-standing artifacts. The tests regarded two types of statues subjected to a series of seismic records (accelerograms) at increasing amplitude. See the following relative video
