A new webGIS app: The seismic risk of Bucharest

Some of our recently published work (Toma-Danila et al., 2022) regarding the Network-risk methodology and toolbox applied to Bucharest has been included in a new app: “The seismic risk of Bucharest”.

Check it out at in Romanian, it shouldn’t be hard to understand.

The app includes layers regarding:

  • individual buildings in seismic risk class I and II or urgency categories (all highly vulnerable buildings – but not all of them in reality)
  • buildings affected by the 1977, March 4 (Mw 7.7; 94 km depth) and the 1940, November 10 (Mw 7.7; 150 km depth) Vrancea earthquakes
  • areas which might become inaccesible in case of an earthquake (based on Toma-Danila et al., 2022)
  • service area results for the nearest hospital and fire department (based on Toma-Danila et al., 2022)
  • routes toward important hospitals, for 4 representative analysis points in the city centre (based on Toma-Danila et al., 2022)
  • results of the hazard and risk analysis (for the 1:1000 years return period) performed by INCDFP, URBAN-INCERC and UTCB within the Ro-Risk Project in 2017
  • hospitals in Bucharest and Ilfov County, with info regarding their importance in case on an earthquake (based on Toma-Danila et al., 2022)
  • fire stations in Bucharest and Ilfov County (based on Toma-Danila et al., 2022)
  • seismic zonation maps, according to the present seismic design code (P100-1/2013)
