The cast in place floors of existing buildings realized in Italy in the '60-70' years are commonly made by longitudinal beams and hollow clay bricks with a top deck without internal reinforcement. Thus, they are unable to properly guarantee the load distribution function over structural members which is strongly required in case of seismic actions. Furthermore, the deck thickness of such horizontal structures is commonly less than the minimum value given by current codes (>= 40 mm) in order to assume the floor as rigid in plan.
