Gli eventi naturali estremi sono sempre più frequenti. Anche se in genere non è possibile prevederli si può cercare di simularne gli effetti. E’ questo, ad esempio, il caso degli eventi sismici. E, a sorpresa, la matematica può aiutare a capire come affrontare le conseguenze e l’impatto dei terremoti su […]

Introduction The analysis of surface or underground train-induced ground vibrations a nd their effect on human beings and surrounding structures is of  paramount importance, especially for environmental impact studies of new high-speed train lines crossing urban areas. This problem is  particularly challenging and demanding from a computational point of view, […]
