Firstly, this paper discusses the solutions currently in use for problems related to the connections between different structural materials. Alternative solutions aimed at optimizing the use of the component materials and the design approach have been identified. On this base an inventory of typical solutions has been developed and indications for the design of these solutions have been given. Connection both to reinforced concrete and masonry have been analysed. Alternative solutions, mostly based on post-inserted anchors, have been studied for the use in operation of seismic reinforcement of existing buildings. The relative design procedures have been developed and subsequently checked by cyclic tests performed on a variety of different connections involving different support materials and different connection systems.
