Resumen

This paper presents the integration of parametric modelling with NDT (NDT) and advanced numerical simulations for assessing the seismic response of an emblematic stone-masonry vaulted construction, the 16th-century church of the Society of Jesus located in Cusco, Peru. Revit parametric families allowed the creation of complex curved elements such as vaults and 3D geometrical models of the church based on a hybrid point cloud. The onsite survey results indicated that the main anomalies correspond to the presence of biological agents and cracking. In contrast, NDT allowed the estimation of the masonry material properties and the modal identification primarily of the towers. Finally, the application of pushover analyses allowed the estimation of the structure's maximum load capacity and post-peak behavoir. It was possible to determine that some collapse mechanisms (overturning of main façade and bell towers, and the generation of hinges in curved elements) can be activated in medium-strong earthquakes.
