Recent seismic events in Europe, as L’Aquila earthquake (2009) and Emilia earthquake (2012), seriously hit the precast concrete structures. Among the others, one of the most widespread damage is the collapse of the cladding panels system. The high vulnerability of precast panels connections motivate the need of an extended study on the behavior of precast panels and on their interaction with the structure. The first step of this study must be the investigation of the dynamic behavior (in particular, the vibration periods) of one-story precast structures with and without cladding panels. In this paper a parametric study is performed in order to evaluate the first period of one-story precast buildings, without and with the cladding system. In particular, the aim of the work is to compare the results of the model with cladding panels to the dynamic properties of the bare model, in order to evaluate the cladding system influence on the stiffness and on the first period of this structural typology. Moreover, the results are compared with the code relationships that predict the first period of structures in linear static analysis.
