This paper focuses on the evaluation of the seismic performance of Venus, the central sculpture of Bartolomeo Ammannati's Juno Fountain. A 3D geometrical model based on a laser scanner survey has been obtained and employed to build the finite element model (FEM) used in the analyses. The seismic response of the sculpture has been checked by performing different dynamic analyses, applying a spectrum-compatible ground motion and using different computer codes and assumptions. The considered numerical models differ from each other regarding the material behavior (linear and non-linear) and the connection between the statue and its base. Information useful for the seismic assessment of the artefact has been provided, thanks to the different models used.

Abstract

This paper focuses on the evaluation of the seismic performance of Venus, the central sculpture of Bartolomeo Ammannati's Juno Fountain. A 3D geometrical model based on a laser scanner survey has been obtained and employed to build the finite element model (FEM) used in the analyses. The seismic response of the sculpture has been checked by performing different dynamic analyses, applying a spectrum-compatible ground motion and using different computer codes and assumptions. The considered numerical models differ from each other regarding the material behavior (linear and non-linear) and the connection between the statue and its base. Information useful for the seismic assessment of the artefact has been provided, thanks to the different models used.
