A series of cyclic and pseudodynamic tests were performed on a large composite building, as part of a research programme funded by the European Commission. The building was a composite full-scale structure. The main scope of the testing activity was to derive/calibrate numerical models and design rules for composite structures. However, since only one quarter of the building was constructed and tested, most of the results are also of interest as for the study of asymmetric structures.
