At a height of around 2,100 m you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the dolomites with a delicious meal.
Since 2016 these amenities have been available at the top station of the Obereggen skiing area, South Tyrol.
Buildings made of reinforced concrete, steel and timber can be subjected to static and dynamic calculations and designs in the structural analysis programs RFEM and RSTAB.
The corresponding add-on modules can perform the ultimate and serviceability limit state design as well as fire resistance design and stability analysis.
Structural engineering FEA software RFEM is the basis of a modular software system. The main program RFEM is used to define structures, materials, and loads for planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells and members. The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as model solid and contact elements.
Structural frame analysis and design software RSTAB contains a similar range of functions as RFEM, with special attention to beam, frame and truss structures. Therefore it is very easy to use and for many years it has been the best choice for structural analysis and design of timber structures.
For dynamic analysis of buildings, there are various add‑modules available for determination of natural frequencies and mode shapes as well as for seismic analysis.
Dlubal Software provides powerful structural analysis software for construction planning according to Building Information Modeling (BIM).
This is ensured primarily by a wide range of RFEM and RSTAB interfaces (for example direct interfaces with Tekla Structures and Revit Structure).
An architectural highlight of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts is the glass atrium.
The glass facade and the glass skylight are supported entirely by the cable structure. The design was conceived as a cello’s strings fanning over a bridge and fret-board.
The "Hemsedal Ski Center" in the Scandinavian Alps is one of the top 3 ski resorts in Norway with a total of 49 ski slopes and 20 surface lifts.
At the foot of the mountainside, a new steel and reinforced concrete building of an apartment hotel with 100 modern rooms will be completed by the end of 2017.
Brock Commons is a student residence currently under construction at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.
The mass timber hybrid structure comprises of five‑ply cross laminated timber (CLT) floor panels, a concrete transfer slab, and a steel framed roof.
The New Candlewood Suites on Redstone Arsenal in Alabama, USA, is the first cross‑laminated timber (CLT) hotel constructed in the US.
This four story building, made of 1,782 m3 of CLT and 366 m3 of glulam material, serves the lodging needs of the Redstone Arsenal Army post.
The monastery "Little Flower" was built in 2015, situated in beautiful scenery of green meadows, mountains and crystal-clear lakes.
The little monastery includes 18 bedrooms, a chapel, a dining room, a kitchen, and a conference room.
The historical building of Théâtre Marigny had to undergo renovation due to its serious defects of the roof structure which led to its closure in 2013.
The metastable equilibrium resulted from unreliable planning which did not consider the effects of assymetrical load and the suspended ceiling on the roof structure during construction in 1925.
Cavezzo in the region of Emilia was damaged by the 2012 earthquake which caused many public and private structures to became uninhabitable.
The municipal gym had damages so serious that it was necessary to completely demolish the existing reinforced concrete structure.
Building Information Modeling describes one of the most important issues in the construction software industry. This process is not new and it’s a well‑known fact that reliable planning in the early stages of a project has a significant positive effect on the project’s total cost. For more than twenty years, 3D models in the steel construction industry have been utilised so that 2D production documents could be created automatically or the related NC data could be sent directly to automatic production.
Wind is the only climatic load acting on every single type of structure in the entire world, different from other loads like snow, for example. The wind size depends on the geographical location of the structure. That is one of the main reasons why today’s standards have regional division (wind zones) and consideration of altitude, as well as variation of dynamic pressure depending on the height above ground for a ‘normal’ site, without masking effect.
