Abstract text:
The paper is structured in three main parts. In the first part, there is a classification of the critical systems existing in the urban background, which are part of an extremely urging informational infrastructure in case of a seismic event. The critical systems are identified as those systems whose malfunction may lead to disasters affecting the human being and the environment as well. The second part focuses on the underground pipe networks, presenting at the same time, their classification into three categories of great importance in case of an earthquake, and last but not least, the final part contains the presentation of an analysis methodology of seismic behavior of the underground pipe networks, considered as part of the existing critical systems, in case of a seismic event in an urban area.
