Work Package 6

For WP6 two full worked examples of multi-storey steel-concrete construction equipped with DRDs will be prepared based on the design rules provided in WP5. The design will be performed according to the European Codes (Eurocodes 3, 4 and 8), taking into account the reformulation of the provisions according to WP5. Subsequently, nonlinear dynamic analysis on these examples will be performed in order to validate the design rules.
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) will be carried out in order to evaluate the environmental and economic benefits related to the three-proposed dissipative replaceable devices (DRDs), in view of a commercial exploitation of the DRDs technology in the Construction Market in Seismic Areas.
