The work developed under COST -C1 - Seismic Working Group during the last few years is briefly presented.It is attempted to assess the implied improved seismic performance of structures with semi-rigid connections. Under the perspective of the performance-based seismic engineering, the methods and procedures for an explicit evaluation of the structural performance curves and the steps of a life cycle cost analysis, particularly for structures with and without semi-rigid connections, are herein introduced.
