ASDEA performs sophisticated structural investigations using rigorous approaches that only advanced research experience can guarantee. We provide a wide range of advanced numerical analyses that include linear and nonlinear analyses, material characterization, structure performance evaluation, collapse investigations, and safety and reliability analysis.
The work that has been developed in the past years has been published in several scientific journals and international conferences.
Our structural rehabilitation services provide a comprehensive package with our structural and seismic evaluation services which include retrofits of buildings and infrastructures.
ASDEA provides services for design, analysis and structural consulting. The added value that we are able to offer comes from the preparation of our experts who have years of experience in the research field, from an efficient organization, and from the satisfaction obtained from working together with the clients and the other members of the team involved in the design.
Soil-structure interaction plays an important role in the field of earthquake engineering, although it is often overlooked at the design level. The members of ASDEA have developed extensive research both on the propagation of seismic waves in the ground and how they interact with the structure, as well as seismic amplification due to the topography and stratigraphy of the soil.
ASDEA has collaborated with other research institutions to carry out research in seismic engineering, in particular in the selection of seismic recordings aimed at analyzing the nonlinear dynamics of structures, the direction of motion and the dynamic behavior of structures in function of their damage.
ASDEA performed a linear dynamic analysis to evaluate the magnitude of
accelerations with particular care for the delicate “Fly Eye” telescope optics.
ASDEA also designed the telescope’s stand to avoid that its frequencies do not modify the telescope behavior during a seismic event.

The European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) will be the largest telescope-based astronomical observatory in the world featuring an optical/near-infra-red telescope and advanced features. ASDEA performed the seismic hazard study and designed the 3D seismic isolation system to protect the telescope for the European Southern Observatories (ESO).
