A proposal for the seismic consolidation of an existing r. c. social housing complex is presented. The intervention is thought to concern just the external facades in order to minimize costs and discomfort of inhabitants. Two external hybrid steel-glass bracing frameworks have been designed, with the aim to reach both seismic and energetic advantages. The mechanics of the framework system takes advantages from the compressive strength of the glass panels and the tension strength of steel braces and columns. A hypothetical application on a typical r. c. building dating back to the ‘60s in the city of Leghorn (Italy) is illustrated.

Abstract

A proposal for the seismic consolidation of an existing r. c. social housing complex is presented. The intervention is thought to concern just the external facades in order to minimize costs and discomfort of inhabitants. Two external hybrid steel-glass bracing frameworks have been designed, with the aim to reach both seismic and energetic advantages. The mechanics of the framework system takes advantages from the compressive strength of the glass panels and the tension strength of steel braces and columns. A hypothetical application on a typical r. c. building dating back to the ‘60s in the city of Leghorn (Italy) is illustrated.
