publications

Equidas is on the cutting edge between design and academia. This means that we actively participate in conferences and contribute papers to scientific journals on subjects such as Seismic Isolation, Seismic Rehabilitation of existing buildings & strengthening techniques, Soil-structure interaction. Furthermore we participate in earthquake reconnaissance teams formed after major events in Greece and neighboring countries. 

A list of selected publications where members of our team are involved is given below:
