Fulfilment of conditions given by European design codes for structures in seismic regions presents a problem during the design of new and repairing of existing structures. Although there are various options, obvious choices are solutions which provide increase of rigidity and seismic capacity with minimal increase of structural mass. Current research at the University of Zagreb, performed in cooperation with the University of Ljubljana, is leading to the development of special kind of high-ductility hybrid panel made of timber frame with supporting laminated glass infill, which, in addition to strength and stiffness, is also characterized by high level of seismic energy dissipation. This paper objective is to give preliminary assessment of application of hybrid panel as seismic reinforcement in concrete, steel and timber frame structures. Finally, to provide more accurate input data, numerical results are compared for the structures tested in full-scale shaking table test.
