Réalisation de voiles ductiles de contreventement béton armé.
Ces voiles ductiles formeront des palées de stabilité permettant de contreventer le bâtiment toute hauteur selon la règlementation parasismique en vigueur.

My present attempt is:

RC restrained buckling panels, but confirmation or otherwise would be appreciated.

Si par "contreventer le batiment" vous voulez parler d'assurer la stabilité globale du batiment vis-à-vis de tout effet horizontal comme le vent, séisme, choc, freinage, etc et pas seulement du vent, alors je proposerai
"ductile shear wall"

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you. I received following yesterday from former Proz member who still keeps an eye on what is happening, and which confirms your amended answer. So you're looking at a "ductile reinforced-concrete shear wall": Structural dynamics of slender DUCTILE REINFORCED CONCRETE SHEAR WALLS https://www.researchgate.net/publication/235335226_Structural_dynamics_of_slender_ductile_reinforced_concrete_shear_walls
