Abstract:

Combined non-destructive in situ techniques – namely sonic tests and ambient vibration measurements – are applied on two Nepali Pagoda temples damaged by the 2015 Gorkha earthquake, providing the dynamic elastic modulus of masonry and the buildings’ frequencies.

Keywords: Ambient Vibrations, Earthquake damage, Sonic Test, non-destructive combined techniques
