This paper proposes a methodology for the probabilistic reliability assessment of heritage buildings. The procedure addresses investigation and tests on the structure and it considers the implementation of Bayesian updating techniques for a rational use of the collected information. After having described the peculiarities of ancient buildings, it is shown how probabilistic methods can be adapted to evaluate their safety.

Abstract

This paper proposes a methodology for the probabilistic reliability assessment of heritage buildings. The procedure addresses investigation and tests on the structure and it considers the implementation of Bayesian updating techniques for a rational use of the collected information. After having described the peculiarities of ancient buildings, it is shown how probabilistic methods can be adapted to evaluate their safety. A practical application of the methodology to a relevant case study is presented, namely a historic aqueduct in Italy. The main goal is to demonstrate the effectiveness of a probabilistic approach to the reliability assessment of heritage structures.
