MATERIALS AND KNOW-HOW TO CONTROL NATURAL PHENOMENA
We have been working for years in experimental research projects to understand the problems for which we develop our solutions.
In particular, we focused on reducing the seismic vulnerability of timber constructions by studying the behaviour of the traditional metal connections with which they are constructed.
Earthquake is considered one of the most devastating natural phenomena.
It can neither be avoided nor predicted, therefore the only way to reduce its catastrophic effects is to intervene on the structures and design them appropriately.
For this reason we started the Seismic Rev project, a unicum by a private company: in order to quantify the different stiffness levels of the fastening systems, the parameter (Kser) has been experimentally identified, it allows to evaluate the structure deformation and design with greater awareness.
The advantages for the designer are tangible: he has at his disposal experimental parameters that provide both stiffness (Kser) and strength, he can evaluate the deformations of the building according to the stiffness (Kser) of the connection elements and he can design in a seismically safe way, as he knows the energy dissipation of each of our connectors under cyclic and dynamic loads.
And a more secure design of the building translates into the peaceful sleep of its occupants.
