Abstract

Present work summarizes a study on the stability of some parts of the Claudius Aqueduct in Rome (1st century AD). The project provides empirical applications linked to the definition of minimal interventions for the structural restoration of a section of the structure near Capannelle. Results of the kinematic analyzes conducted and of experiment with a physical model representing the structure of the upper hydraulic conduit (speco) are reported. Ultimately, hypothetical minimal interventions are outlined for the protection of the structure and at the same time of the image and usability of the Aqueduct.
