Abstract

A procedure for the analysis of the ultimate behaviour of re frames under seismic loads is defined in detail and it is applied to four schemes, each one de- signed many times with different behaviour factors and design criteria. The re- sults obtained confirm the effectiveness of the adopted procedure, pointing out the influence of the intensity of the seismic event on the structure. The possibil- ity of relating the entity of damage and the probability of failure to the design parameters allows a proper evaluation of the i
