In this paper, an innovative type of yielding damper was introduced having aluminium panels and stiffened using stiffeners. Dampers are the first elements in structures which respond to seismic forces, prevent from destructive damage to other main elements of structure and reduce the costs...
Combined effect of flaky and elongated aggregates on strength and workability of concrete has often been qualitatively expressed. This work aims at establishing the same quantitatively. M 25 grade concrete for different ratios of weights of elongated to flaky aggregate and angular to total...
The present paper analyses the behaviour of moment resisting frames in reinforced concrete subject to earthquakes recorded in near-field areas. In these areas, the signals show impulsive-type accelerograms, with velocity and displacement peaks higher than in far-field zones especially for the...
This paper presents the results obtained from an experimental investigation carried out on a set of reinforced concrete beams strengthened in flexure by using an unidirectional high-strength carbon steel fibre reinforcing mesh embedded in an inorganic matrix (SRG: steel reinforced grout) and in...
The insertion of damped braces proves to be very effective for the seismic retrofitting of framed buildings. In the last few decades several applications have been used in many countries, adopting damping systems with different characteristics, depending on both the arrangement of the damped...
