Abstract

The paper summarizes the studies conducted on the military dry dock in the Port of Messina (built in 1861), to assess the seismic vulnerability. For this work was conducted an accurate research on the historical sources of Technical Office of the Italian Civil Engineers, to know the construction methods, the operations made after the earthquake of 1908 and to increase the size on 1950. Studies have included the implementation of a finite element model for seismic analysis and with a simulation of construction stages. The analysis results are evaluated against mandatory italian design code to assess the seismic vulnerability of the structure.
