Cover Story (view full-size image): The presence of infill panels substantially modifies the seismic performances of reinforced concrete (RC) frames in terms of strength, stiffness, and energy dissipation. Despite several studies focused on the quantification of the effect of infill presence on the overall performances of infilled RC frames, the best strategy to simulate the presence of infill panels remains an open debate. This study investigates the effects of different infill constitutive models on the seismic performance of infilled RC buildings expressed in terms of engineering demand parameters, and on the generation of damage fragility curves.
