ICT is recognized as being a key player against climate change: pervasive sensors and actuators can efficiently control the whole energy chain (Smart Thermal/Electricity Grid). On the other side, advances on 3D modeling, visualization and interaction technologies enable user profiling and real-time feedback to promote energy efficient behaviors. To unlock the potentiality of these technologies, th ...

Multiscale Modelling of Landslides and Debris Flows (MUMOLADE)

Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Dec 31, 2015,

"Landslides and debris flows are serious geo-hazards common to countries with mountainous terrains. The high speed and the enormity of debris mass make debris flows one of the most dangerous natural hazards. Debris flows are often triggered by landslides partially or completely mobilizing into debris flows. Globally, landslides cause billions of dollars in damage and thousands of deaths and injuri ...

Advanced Systems for Wood Fire Protection (ReactaFire)

Start date: Nov 1, 2013, End date: Nov 30, 2015,

Wood is an important construction material (over 70% of people in the developed world live in timber frame housing) as it performs well as an engineering material and compared to other commonly used construction materials it is more sustainable. However, timber is combustible, unlike concrete or steel, and this has significant implications for how it is used within the construction industry as the ...
