Abstract

Recent earthquakes have further highlighted the high vulnerability of RC buildings built prior to the 1970’s. This work focuses on global retrofit interventions with external exoskeletons using low-damage PRESSS (PREcast Seismic Structural System) Technologies, based on unbonded post-tensioned jointed ductile connections and relying on a peculiar rocking and dissipating mechanism. Following a Displacement-Based Retrofit procedure, the feasibility and efficiency of implementing a PRESSS exoskeleton frame, able to protect the existing building by targeting a specific performance level, is investigated. Non-linear static and dynamic analyses are carried out to validate the design procedure and verify the overall performance of the retrofitted building.
