The paper presents the results of some investigations on the seismic behaviour of one-storey reinforced concrete structures for industrial buildings. The investigations are based on proper analytical models, calibrated against initial cyclic and pseudodynamic testing. An incremental collapse dynamic analysis is applied together with a statistical procedure, following Monte Carlo method, for the sorting of seismic input and the final interpretation of results. The problem concerning the choice of ground accelerograms, recorded or artificial, are discussed. Finally the representative values of seismic capacity obtained from the analyses are shown to demonstrate that precast structures have the same seismic capacity of the corresponding cast-in-situ structures and that both the structures have in general a large superabundance of strength in earthquake conditions.
