STRUCTURAL AND SEISMIC ENGINEERING
RIZZO HAS LONG BEEN RECOGNIZED FOR EXPERTISE IN THE EVALUATION OF STRUCTURAL AND SEISMIC ISSUES FOR CONVENTIONAL AND NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS, FOR DAMS, AND FOR OTHER CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE.
Structural and Seismic
RIZZO's structural engineering services primarily include steel and concrete analysis and design for conventional and extreme service conditions; and static, dynamic, time-history, linear, and non-linear analysis of structures. Our seismic engineering services in turn include seismic load analysis and seismic design, seismic probabilistic risk assessment and fragility analysis, and seismic evaluation and qualification (including seismic walk-downs and seismic margin assessments). RIZZO also provides forensic and diagnostic structural engineering services. Typically, these services include the assessment of event-specific damage to facilities, and corresponding repair and/or retrofit and upgrade solutions.
