Day 6: Group 3 Head to Amatrice

Flavia, Giuseppe, Davide, Tristan and Liz travelled to Amatrice. Data on the performance of Reinforced Concrete (RC) buildings was collected using rapid survey forms. The group was escorted through the damaged “red zone” by the Fire Brigade.


One of the buildings examined was a school. Part of the building had collapsed. RC columns retrofitted with fibre-reinforced strips were visible in the remaining structure. The school is currently under investigation by the Italian authorities.
