Velodrome Project, Paraguay
At Metalúrgica Vera SRL, a metalworking company in Paraguay, metal structures are manufactured and assembled for various projects. One such project is the Velodrome, a sports facility prepared for cycling competitions.
|Structural Engineer||Ing. Gustavo Resquin|
|Manufacturing and Assembly||Metalúrgica Vera S.R.L.|
The structure was calculated entirely by the Calculation Department of Metalúrgica Vera SRL, according to the corresponding regulations and the Paraguayan Wind Standard NP 196.
The most relevant aspect of this type of structure is the roof cover, with an area of approximately 11,000 yd2. It is made of frames with "bi-articulated arches" spanning about 256 feet between supports and with a rise of about 39 feet. The structure's weight is 259.043 tons.

Parametrization of Rolled Cross-Sections
Rolled sections, the most common cross‑section type in RFEM and RSTAB, can also have user‑defined parameters.

- How do I apply wind load on members of open structures?
- I do not want to design a cross-section in the RF‑/STEEL EC3 add-on module. Can I quickly remove this cross-section from the selection?
- I have a roof structure resting on a steel column that runs to the foundations. The column runs through a perimeter wall that supports the false ceiling. A considerable part of the load from the roof is transferred to the wall. I want the steel column to carry all the vertical loads from the roof. How can I do it?
