SEISMIC RETROFIT ON ADJACENT BUILDINGS

SEISMIC RETROFIT ON ADJACENT BUILDINGS

In addition to seismic isolation, seismic improvement/adjustment of existing buildings is often achieved through the use of dissipators, usually inserted into framed structures as components of dissipative bracings, that is, by using inter-storey displacement to dissipate energy.

Anti-seismic devices used in the seismic upgrading of existing buildings, also include dynamic restraint devices (or ROD type temporary restraint or shock transmitters), devices that constitute a rigid axial restraint between the structures to which they are connected when subjected to dynamic actions (such as an earthquake), but that allow movement in the event of slow actions (thermal expansion).

Typically, these devices are used where the joints between adjacent buildings are not sufficient to connect the different bodies during seismic activity, after checking the overall behaviour of buildings that during seismic activity form a new single seismic resistant structural body.
