Vulnerability and risk

Advanced nonlinear analysis is the tool capable of providing the most realistic simulation of the structural damage initiation and propagation.

This characteristic defines it as the best strategy in order to evaluate the vulnerability of the structures, and their risk in front of specific hazards.

Iktes offers its experience and knowledge in the behavior of structures and in the use of advanced simulation techniques in:

  • Creation of detailed models of the structure in study

  • Estimation of the structural performance (strength, ductility & cyclic response)

  • Detection of most demanded and vulnerable structural elements and zones

  • Determination of performance characteristic points in order to set limits in alert systems [displacements, accelerations, …]

  • Evaluation of the vulnerability and risk against to a certain hazard
