Empirical data about direct economic consequences of Emilia-Romagna 2012 earthquake on long-span-beam buildings

Abstract

The seismic events that struck the Italian region Emilia-Romagna in 2012 provoked not only numerous injuries and casualties but also vast damage to thousands of buildings, infrastructures, and production sites. In particular, unlike other Italian sequences, that of 2012 was notable for the high value of losses in the industrial sector. Soon after the earthquakes, plans were set up in order to provide financial help to both citizens and enterprises, and to this aim the regional authority gathered and classified damage and loss reports. Information was collected in a database called SFINGE. This study is an empirical data analysis of a consistent subset of SFINGE, whose elements are long-span-beam buildings used as production sites. Results are in terms of direct economic losses and cost of reconstruction. This work is a precious source of seismic economic consequence assessment tools for the considered building typology, within the framework of Performance-Based Earthquake Engineering.
