Damage assessment of water supply networks due to seismic events using vulnerability functions

Ivan Halkijević, Dražen Vouk, Hana Posavčić, Hrvoje Mostečak

Abstract

The paper presents commonly used methodology for assessing damage of water supply networks after a seismic event. The methodology relies on deriving and applying so-called vulnerability function. An overview of the existing vulnerability functions is given together with parameters, primarily related to soil deformations, which are influencing the assessment. Also, a critical review of the possibility of their use is given. Finally, by using two approaches, the estimated number of damages, with associated repair costs, is given for the water supply network of the City of Petrinja after the earthquake on December 29, 2020. With a total of 3 800 new damages, it is estimated that the total repair costs are around HRK 28 million. The accuracy of these estimates should be verified after detailed collection and processing of relevant data in accordance with the given guidelines.
