Abstract

Although closely related with the building structure and required to possess adequate resistance to the acting loads too, the new cladding systems have shown not infrequently inconsistencies or mechanical deficiencies, such as to compromise their safety. The paper shows the necessity of studying and solving the structural aspects of façade claddings through proper numerical modelling and laboratory test, defining a systematic methodology for the evaluation of the structural aspects of the façade cladding that can be used both in case of new construction and building refurbishment.
