iRESIST+ experimental activities

The iRESIST+ and NOTICEEUB concepts will be validated through full-scale testing at the JRC-ELSA reaction wall facility. The experiments will include a series of earthquake simulations (i.e. pseudo-dynamic tests) and thermal performance evaluations (i.e. blower door test) to assess the seismic behaviour and energy efficiency of a full-scale prototype building before and after retrofitting.
