Seismic behavior of eccentric bracing

This article discusses a particularly interesting topic on the anti-seismic behavior of structures equipped with eccentric bra cings through a real-world example comparing this dissipative typology with the behavior of an inverted V bracing system already presented in a previous article in faresismica.

The criteria of EN 1998-1 and the more restrictive criteria of NTC 2008 are also critically compared.
