Abstract

This article deals with the topic of seismic vulnerability of single-storey industrial buildings, proposing the design of a new system able to support the movement of the load-bearing structure during earthquakes. The targets of this solution at greater resilience, designed with prefabricated elements and innovative structure-cladding junctions, are the improvement of the performances of the industrial buildings in case of earthquake and the structural optimization of their load-bearing system with possible consequences for environmental sustainability, considering the possible reduction of construction material and energy during the production and transport phase.
