Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013

85 X Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013 - Category 1: Buildings Category 1: Buildings 1, Consultant Civil Engineers Short description │Summer house in Halkidiki The project concerns a summer house in Halkidiki. It is a two-storey building located just a few metres from the Aegean sea. The location is actually within an area prone to hazardous seismic activity. The strongest earthquake of the 20th century in this area was the Ierissos earthquake that struck in 1932, with a magnitude of 7.0 on the Richter scale. The building is concrete, with plates that are adjusted directly to the columns and walls without beams. For specifying the transfer of the horizontal seismic forces from the plates to the vertical elements, without the existence of beams, an FE modelisation was necessary. The structure was analysed and designed using Scia Engineer and ECTools software in order to describe the whole structure using surface and linear finite elements. Contact P. Zervas, I. Lavassas, M.
