STATE OF THE ART OF SEISMIC DESIGN OF RC PRECAST FARM BUILDINGS

Abstract

Structural design of rural buildings deals with several requirements, among which seismic resistance. In this study the state of the art of Italian seismic zoning and its possible consequences over the design of rural buildings are analyzed. Study cases are proposed referring to a municipality of Emilia-Romagna region, regarding precast concrete structures, that are widely employed in farms. Linear and non linear criteria are adopted for modelling seismic-resistant elements. Pushover analyses are performed to verify the designed structures. Results are expressed in terms of parameters quantifying structural reliability and construction costs.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
