STESSA 2003 - Behaviour of Steel Structures in Seismic Areas Proceedings of the 4th International Specialty Conference, Naples, Italy, 9-12 June 2003

Edited By Federico Mazzolani Copyright 2003

    Presenting a comprehensive overview of recent developments in the field of seismic resistant steel structures, this volume reports upon the latest progress in theoretical and experimental research into the area, and groups findings in the following key sections:

    · performance-based design of structures
    · structural integrity under exceptional loading
    · material and member behaviour
    · connections
    · global behaviour
    · moment resisting frames
    · passive and active control
    · strengthening and repairing
    · codification
    · design and application
