Colleagues from Zagreb invited Anže Babič, Jure Žižmond, Aleš Jamšek and Matjaž Dolšek to contribute to Ambassador session of the 1st Croatian Conference on Earthquake Engineering. They presented the IKPIR application for seismic risk analysis of the built environment and the draft of a building’s seismic performance label.

The seismic stress test of the building stock in Slovenia was carried out about a year ago. It is the results of the basic research project funded by the Slovenian Research Agency and applied research project funded by the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning of the Republic of Slovenia. The negative result of the seismic stress test is a warning that comprehensive action is needed. Physics-based seismic risk simulations and related digital building’s seismic performance label are crucial to establishing unbiased seismic risk perception and communication, which is a prerequisite to enhancing seismic resilience prior to a major seismic event.

Seismic performance labels introduced by the researchers from the Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering, Institut of Structural Engineering, Earthquake Engineering and Construction IT (IKPIR)  can also be used as a tool for risk management, and, consequently, for strengthening community seismic resilience.

In addition to the Ambassador session’s organisers from Croatia,  the event was attended by representatives of India, Japan, and Italy.

The interested reader can check the presentation and the paper, which was sent to Associate Professor Josip Atalić one week before the event, but it was not yet added to the Conference proceedings.
