Dynamic Nonlinear Analyses for the 4-storey Infilled R/C Frame. Study of Retrofitting Solution
A research project on assessment and retrofitting of R/C structures is currently being developed under the research programme of the ICONS TMR-research network. This paper presents and discusses the preliminary experimental results from a 4-storey bare frame representative of the common practise of 40-50 years ago in most south European Countries and devotes special attention to the study of a retrofitting solution based on bracing and rubber dissipaters, which intends to increase stiffness and damping reducing consequently the earthquake deformation demands.
