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.
