Il comportamento sismico di strutture Calcestruzzo leggero (IT)
SEISMIC BEHAVIOUR OF STRUCTURES WITH LIGHTWEIGHT AGGREGATE CONCRETE
The purpose of this research is to highlight the seismic behavior of concrete structures with lightweight aggregates of expanded clay, directly against the same structures but made up of ordinary concrete.
Following an introductory part in which the main research carried out in the past on the behavior of lightweight structural concrete in the seismic area (comparisons between different approaches to regulation) has been recalled:
– Seismic design of a new moment resisting frame in Reinforced Concrete with 6 multi – stories structure in both light and ordinary structural concrete, following the requirements of Eurocode 2 and 8 and according to various seismic design action;
– Strengthening of wooden floor slab in existing masonry buildings through the creation of a composite section of the elements, which also acts as a rigid diaphragm, both in light and ordinary structural concrete, with specific attention to the effects on the overall seismic behavior of the building.
