The European Laboratory for Structural Assessment (ELSA) is currently active in the network Prenormative Research in support of EuroCode 8 (PREC8). ELSA is providing the necessary large-scale tests for the calibration of the computer models and the confirmation of the numerical results. The experimental programme is carried out as part of the activities of the Infilled Frames and Bridges working groups. As far as the Infilled Frames working group is concerned, the results are presented of the pseudodynamic tests on a four-storey full-size reinforced concrete frame with different configurations of infills. For the Bridges working group, the results of the 1:2.5 tests on four three-pier bridges with different degrees of structural regularity are presented.
