Titre : OPERHA Open and fully compatible next generation of strengthening system for the Rehabilitation of Mediterranean cultural heritage

Région : Méditerranée

Code du projet : 517765 FP6-INCO

Durée : 2006-01-01 to 2008-12-31

Objectifs
The overall objective of OPERHA project is the design, development, testing and validation of an adaptable and reversible restoration solution for structural strengthening of historical buildings in Europe and the Mediterranean Area, focused in the use of the fiber reinforced polymer. Main advances with regards to state of the art are expected in both the laminate and anchoring system. The aim is to provide an integrated solution, bridging technical, architectural and socio-economic settings. The restoration has to be made by paying attention to reduce the impact over the ancient building, having in mind minimum intervention derived actions over the structure during and after its strengthening. The flexibility and integration of all the above technical, cultural, societal and economical aspects, requires multidisciplinary human work teams. As such, the OPERHA consortium is composed by experienced professionals in architecture, engineering, sociology, archaeology and history in the field of the building Heritage restoration all over Europe and the Mediterranean Area. The scientific and technological testing and validation will be done at lab scale. The validation of final solution will be done in pilot proofs. These trials will be made at different real Heritage buildings in all around the Mediterranean countries. The selection of buildings has been done on the basis of their geographical location, common uses, their material and structural components, seismic conditions and their environmental conditions. The work plan has been divided into seven WPs : two of which address specific socio-economic and cultural objective, three are focused on research, technological and innovation activities and the remaining two ones relate to dissemination and exploitation activitie s and project management
