Abstract

The seismic upgrading of r.c. framed structures can be carried out by means of the introduction of new structural elements capable of dissipating part of or all the energy transmitted by the earthquake. The work concerns the development of an innovative hysteretical device designed by the same authors, for using within a reinforced concrete frame building. Namely, in the paper both the numerical and experimental analysis are carried out on a coupled system as well as on no- coupled system. A comparison is then made between the data of the two system. 1. Introduction In the conventional seismi
