Influence of SMAs on the attenuation of effects of P-Δ type in shear frames
Ottavia Corbi

     In the paper one investigates the benefits deriving from the introduction of SMA provisions in a structure subject to dynamic excitation and vertical loads. At this purpose one considers a multi-degree-offreedom(mdof) shear elastic-plastic frame and designs couples of super-elastic SMA tendons to be placed at critical locations of the structure. Particular attention is focused on the reduction of P-Δ effects.
Key Words
    structural dynamics; smart materials; semi-active devices; shape memory alloys.
