DEFINIZIONE DI UN METODO DI VERIFICA PER FORZE SISMICHE COMPLANARI ALLE PARETI DI EDIFICI AGRICOLI TRADIZIONALI

Abstract

In this paper a method for the seismic safety verification for in-plane actions, was applied for the analysis of building walls of traditional rural buildings of the Etna area, made of lava stones. The behaviour of some wall typologies of these buildings were analyzed in dependence of several geometric and resistance characteristics. The results are presented as diagrams that, by relating seismic force with wall width and thickness, could be a useful tool to perform a preliminary verification of this walls and to support wall design for the same typology of buildings.
