In November 2012 EEFIT launched its first ever return mission to an earthquake affected site. This paper presents an overview of the post-disaster emergency phase and transition to reconstruction in the L'Aquila area after the earthquake.

The report takes an earthquake engineering perspective, highlighting areas of interest to the fields of structural/ seismic engineering and reconstruction management. The paper covers:

  • Overview of the L'Aquila earthquake
  • The emergency phase
  • Transition to reconstruction
  • Observations on temporary housing
  • Repair and strengthening of buildings
  • Summary of observations from the L'Aquila EEFIT return mission
  • Reflections on the value of return earthquake reconnaissance missions
