Abstract

In this work innovative hybrid coupled shear walls (HCSW) are considered, their design is discussed, their efficiency and limitations evaluated by means of nonlinear static (pushover) analysis. Different numbers of storeys and different geometries of the HCSW system are examined in order to give an overview of situations of interest in European seismic prone areas. The preliminary results here presented show that the force-based design approach leads to promising solutions. However, a displacement-based design approach could help achieving better performing hybrid solutions. This study is part of a larger research project (INNO-HYCO) funded by the European Commission and currently in its first stages of development.
