Three full scale tests performed on an existing RC structure seismically retrofitted by steel eccentric braces are shown and compared to numerical modeling. In each test a detachable vertical steel shear link has been used, but different design criteria have been applied in the design of end-connections. Test results suggest that shear links made with the European hot-rolled steel profiles are characterized by over-strength factors larger than the value (1.5) coming from tests on American wide-flange profiles. In modeling phase, some simplified assumptions were made to predict the behavior of tested links. Then numerical models of the tested structure have been implemented and the comparison with experimental results is discussed.
