Secondary Structures and Attachments Under Seismic Actions: Modeling and Analysis

Nonstructural elements; Secondary Nonstructural Elements; Secondary Structural Elements.
Seismic evaluation of a construction has to include, with a given level of accuracy, the interaction phenomena between (1) soil, (2) foundation, (3) structural part of the construction to be intended as the part in elevation, and (4) nonstructural part to be intended as a part of the construction with minor or no task to the structural capacity.
the seismic evaluation of a construction has to be performed based on 1) the definition of Structural Resisting System (SRS) 2) a proper model implementation of the SRS 3) a proper analysis of the SRS.
Given that the previous principle could resolve the problem, the SRS verification remains one of the goals of the analysis process: it can be pursued with a probabilistic approach (ATC 58 2012) (1) defining the required performance (2) based on the...
