Abstract

The research showed focus on the performance comparison between two equivalent frame structure. i.e. the first one made by steel and the second one by all frp (fibre reinforced polymer) pultruded material. The structure adopted for the analysis is a traditional two floors frame made by connections between columns and beams. The connection has been assumed rigid to simplify the comparison, already very hard and to point out on the overall structural answer of the two different cases. The reason why of the investigation is related to teh need to deep detail the eventually structural benefits in presence of FRP material. However the success is related to a very reduced weight of FRP material (with weight equal to 1600-1800 kg/m3) linked to a not negligible performance in term of strength and durability, even if also the easy employment play a very important rule. The two storeys frame were subjected to static and dynamic actions to analyse also in comparison the response.
