Comment des bâtiments anciens ont-ils pu résister aux tremblements de terre dans des régions notoirement exposées aux risques sismiques ?
Au fil de nombreuses missions dont il fut chargé, tant en France qu'à l'étranger, Alain Billard a longuement étudié les conséquences des séismes sur le patrimoine bâti. Architecte, enseignant et membre de l'Association française du génie parasismique, il a rassemblé dans ce manuel - illustré de près de three hundred photographies et de two hundred schémas - les observations qu'il destine à tous ceux qui ont à cost de restaurer et de protéger des bâtiments endommagés ou menacés par un séisme.
On verra que l'étape préalable est le renforcement, sachant que - rédigé pour des bâtiments neufs - l'Eurocode eight ne s'applique pas aux édifices anciens (sauf à en repenser radicalement l. a. structure).
Les innovations initiales de defense qui ont permis à nombre d'édifices de traverser les siècles pour nous révéler les principes de leur notion architecturale sont ici revisitées. Elles ne sauraient être exhaustives mais elles offrent l'occasion de réfléchir et, enfin, de comprendre certaines des règles qui sous-tendent l'Eurocode eight, lesquelles pourront, dès lors, être relues sous un autre éclairage.

Combat helmets have developed significantly through the years from these utilized in global conflict I to ultra-modern complex strive against Helmet. one of many key advances was once the improvement of aramid fibers within the Nineteen Sixties, which ended in modern day Kevlar-based helmets. the dep. of security is constant to take a position in study to enhance helmet functionality, via larger layout and fabrics in addition to greater production processes.
Review of the dept of protection try Protocols for strive against Helmets considers the technical matters in relation to try protocols for army strive against helmets. on the request of the DOD Director of Operational attempt and evaluate, this record evaluates the adequacy of the complex strive against Helmet try out protocol for either first article trying out and lot attractiveness trying out, together with its use of the metrics of likelihood of no penetration and the higher tolerance restrict (used to judge backface deformation). The file evaluates applicable use of statistical innovations in accumulating information; adequacy of present helmet checking out tactics; techniques for the behavior of extra research of penetration and backface deformation information; and scope of characterization trying out relative to the advantage of the data obtained.
