Abstract
Seismic retrofitting is essential for enhancing the structural safety and resilience of existing buildings in earthquake-prone regions. This study focuses on the experimental investigation and analysis of seismic retrofitting techniques using both destructive and non-destructive tests. Destructive tests, such as shaking table tests and quasi-static tests, are employed to simulate seismic forces and evaluate the behaviour and failure mechanisms of retrofitted structures. The effectiveness of retrofitting methods and materials can be assessed through these tests, providing valuable insights into structural performance. Non-destructive tests, including ultrasonic testing, ground-penetrating radar (GPR), and structural health monitoring (SHM), are utilized to assess the integrity, quality, and condition of retrofitting elements without causing damage to the structure. The data obtained from these tests are analysed and interpreted to evaluate the performance of retrofitted structures, considering factors such as structural deformations, load-carrying capacity, and response under seismic loads. The findings of this experimental study contribute to the development of reliable and effective retrofitting strategies, ultimately improving the seismic resilience of existing structures.
