Abstract: The SAFECLADDING Project was aimed at improving the connection systems between cladding panels and precast RC buildings in seismic-prone areas. Three theoretical approaches have been assessed: isostatic, dissipative and integrated. They were realized using different design strategies, which were represented by several test setups within the experimental campaign. The paper describes the results obtained with two experimental arrangements: horizontal and vertical panels and their comparison with the bare frame, which is the reference for the current design practice that considers panels as non-structural elements. The mock-up was a single-story building, designed for earthquake actions according to the Eurocode 8. The experimental program involved 14 different setups, resulting in a total of 37 tests. All setups were assessed using increasing levels of action, either with cyclic push-over test or pseudo-dynamic test, the latter both for serviceability and ultimate limit states.
