Abstract

Dynamic tests of a dissipative bracing system for seismic control of framed structures V. Ciampi, F. Paolacci, S. Perno Dipertimento di Ingegneria Strutturale e Geotecnica, University of Rome "La Sapienza", Via Eudossiana 18, 00184 Rome, Italy ABSTRACT The paper illustrates the results of an experimental program which deals with dynamic tests on a shaking table of a two-storey, one-bay frame, equipped with dissipative bracing systems. After a description of the general criteria used for the design of the test structure and the definition of the characteristics of the special bracing system, the results of the tests are presented and compared with results obtained by a numerical model of the structure. 1 INTRODUCTION The present paper deals with the evolution of some studies included in a wide program of research, carried out for some years at the University of Rome "La Sapienza", Italy, on the possible applications of dissipative bracing systems for seismic protection of building
