Prefabricated steel structures for low-rise buildings in seismic areas

Objective

Low-rise buildings are obviously extensively used for industrial and commercial activities. Nowadays, most of these buildings are built by prefabricated concrete elements that are well known to suffer from an intrinsic weakness due to low efficiency of connections and a lower ductility performance when subjected to earthquake loading.

The proposal aims at defining prefabricated steel solutions for realising single-storey industrial and lowrise commercial buildings in earthquake-prone areas, able to satisfy requirements of industrial and commercial activities. An automated integrated design software with cost-effectiveness analysis module will be realised to favour the use of proposed solutions in common design practice.
