 Project objective

The project will develop a seismic-resistant steel frame for high seismic resilience. The frame consists of a moment-resisting frame equipped with concentric braces. Replaceable energy-dissipative hourglass shape pins made of duplex stainless steel that results in high post-yield stiffness are in series connected to the braces. Moreover, replaceable fuses are introduced at the locations of the beams of the moment resisting frame where plastic hinges are expected to develop. The project uses an integrated experimental-numerical research methodology to evaluate the seismic performance of the proposed configuration. Emphasis is placed in developing a reliable seismic design methodology for the practical application of the proposed system.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "CBF-EQRES" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
