    seismic data in history matching for a data set in the Norne field. We study their convergence rate and compare their behavior in terms of their uncertainty estimations. 2. Norne field and Synthetic Norne The Norne field is located in the blocks /10 and /10 on a horst block in the southern part of the Nordland II area in the Norwegian Sea. The main work undertaken within these structures concerns improvement of national and European design guidelines in the field of earthquake-resistant design. Aurel Stratan is actively involved in maintaining and upgrading of the existing testing facilities in the laboratory of Steel Structures from the department of Steel Structures and. Structural health monitoring of concrete structures under seismic loads has always attracted a lot of attention in the earthquake engineering community. In this paper, two tests of structural health monitoring of concrete columns using piezoceramic-based sensors are presented. The first test was a shake table test of a reinforced concrete (RC. A team of three researchers and three graduate students will travel to Nepal to collect perishable field data and perform detailed assessments of the seismic performance of buildings. The team will acquire, process, and archive architectural and structural data, including building drawings, in residential buildings and critical facilities.
