"Seismic performance of adobe structures, with and without seismic feedback, of a level and level."

(Work developed together with teachers Marcial Blondet and Julio Vargas)

Nícola Tarque is a full-time professor at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (PUCP). He was involved in projects related to reinforced and non-reinforced masonry (adobe material, stone, clay brick) and was responsible for the dynamic testing of adobe houses at PUCP. His latest research deals with seismic risk assessment based on displacement of masonry dwellings, large-scale assessment of seismic vulnerability of historic sites, numerical modeling of masonry structures and earth movements expected at historic sites as part of Heritage Conservation Cultural. Its main field of work concerns the non-linear dynamic analysis of structures (earth, masonry), finite element modeling, seismic design of masonry and reinforced concrete structures, seismic vulnerability assessment, seismic risk, seismic risk assessment and amplification of ground movements.
