    continuously updated assessment of physical damage loss of functionality direct economic loss and needs of the monitored facilities and will provide the required input for the prioritization of their repair Such detailed monitoring is only economical for selected facilities that are essential for response and recovery or facilities that have a high value as a target for terrorist attacks In case of spatially extended events in order to assess the physical damage in the whole affected area the detailed assessment of damage in the monitored facilities will be used for the speedy local calibration of satellite and oblique aerial photography dramatically reducing the required time to inform the post disaster crisis needs assessment process and provide base data for reconstruction efforts The above will be part of the RECONASS next generation post crisis needs assessment tool in regards to construction damage and related needs This tool will enable fusion of external information allow for future expansion of the system provide international interoperability between the involved units for reconstruction and recovery planning and support the collaborative work between these actors Contact us Project Coordinator Dr Angelos Amditis This email address is being protected from spambots You need JavaScript enabled to view

    crisis needs assessment tool in regards to construction damage and related needs This tool will enable fusion of external information allow for future expansion of the system provide international interoperability between the involved units for reconstruction and recovery planning and support the collaborative work between these actors Objectives To develop a monitoring system for constructed facilities that along with the civil engineering software that will also be developed will provide automatically a reliable near real time assessment of the structural condition and damage of both the structural components and the structural system of the monitored facility as a whole after a disaster To develop based on the above estimates of the structural damage a methodology and the corresponding software implementation for the automatic near real time estimation of the resulting non structural damage the functionality of the facility the total volume of debris from both structural and non structural components in the monitored facilities the cost and duration of structural and non structural repairs and construction manpower and materials needs To continuously update the estimates of structural damage and needs for monitored facilities T o provide seamless interoperability among heterogeneous networks to secure that the required information from the monitored facility can reach in near real time the base station and more specifically a module on Structural Assessment even under difficult conditions such as post crisis situations e g in a post earthquake situation T o use sensor based damage assessment of the monitored facilities for the calibration and validation of remote sensing methods To develop a P ost C risis needs assessment tool in regards to C onstruction D amage and related N eeds PCCDN that will collect information from all the monitored facilities in the affected region e g the parliament the Ministry of the Interior hospitals bridges and process it in order to provide recovery stakeholders with near real time reliable continuously updated information in the form that each one of the stakeholders needs it on structural and non structural damage shoring and demolition needs loss of functionality direct economic loss and the resulting needs in construction labor and materials for the monitored buildings Moreover damage information from the monitored buildings will be used to calibrate and validate spaceborne and airborne damage maps of the monitored buildings and the surrounding affected area in case of an extensive event so that calibrated and validated such maps will be produced and offered by the PCCDN Tool in a much reduced time Furthermore this Tool will enable fusion and integration of relevant external data and information allow for customization and future expansion of the system provide international interoperability and allow for collaborative work between the civil agencies authorities and the relief units The technology in RECONASS which will permit the near real time continuous and reliable assessment of the structural condition of monitored constructed facilities after a disaster will be implemented in this work in the case of reinforced concrete buildings subjected to seismic blast and impact loading and fire

    be developed in this work that will provide redundancy at situations of access network unavailability by utilizing multiple and different access interfaces e g GSM UMTS etc Detailed monitoring is only economical for selected facilities that are essential for response and recovery or facilities that have a high value as a target for terrorist attacks In case of spatially extended events it is essential to get an accurate assessment of physical damage in the whole affected area as soon as possible in order to provide guidance to humanitarian aid contributors as well as subsequent rehabilitation and reconstruction Remote sensing using both air and space borne imagery has been a commonly used tool for rapid damage mapping for more than a decade with increasingly higher spatial and temporal image resolution as well as international agreements such as the International Charter Space and Major Disasters allowing immediate data acquisition and damage mapping after an event However accuracy of such image derived maps has been frequently questionable Kerle 2010 2011 and validation of these maps lengthy Near real time construction damage data from the monitored buildings especially on the structural and non structural elements visible from outside the building will be used in this work in order to effectively calibrate and evaluate the results of remote sensing based damage maps Based on the above a PCCDN Tool will be developed in RECONASS that will provide the recovery stakeholders with near real time detailed and reliable data and information on the construction damage loss and needs of monitored buildings continuously updated and spaceborne and airborne damage maps calibrated and validated for the buildings monitored produced in a much reduced time fused and integrated with relevant external data and information This Tool will provide international interoperability allow for customization and expansion and permit collaborative work between the civil agencies authorities and the relief units The RECONASS work will be carried out in 10 Work Packages WPs as follows WP1 User Requirements and System Architecture involves the analysis of state of theart damage and needs assessment tools standards user requirements specification and the design of system architecture WP2 RECONASS Monitoring System Accurate Positioning Secure Communication involves the development of an indoor automated real time wireless local positioning system that will provide continuous information on the precise 3D localization of tags embedded in the structural elements of a r c building Additionally in this WP commercially available strain acceleration and temperature sensors in a package that will be ready for installation will be prepared Furthermore a Gateway PCCDN tool for communication that will guarantee the real time monitoring of the building even in cases of communication network collapse will be developed The goal of WP3 Damage Loss and Needs Assessment is to develop the software for a the correlation of the tag data on local positioning with the structure that has emerged from the disaster b the assessment of the structural response of the structure that has emerged from the disaster and c the assessment of damage
