The main objective of this research project is to study the application of structural systems based on light gauge cold-formed steel framing to housing in subsidence zones, having the following scopes: characterize the typical settlements in a discontinuity due to subsidence, to build a laboratory facility to simulate these settlements, to simulate and to evaluate numerically and in laboratory in a full scale model the structural performance of a house subjected to settlements due to subsidence, in terms of its stresses and strains and, eventually, its capacity of retrieval to its nondeformed shape.
