Additional 2011 experiment

3-story construction experiment at the technical office of P. Karydis.

The experiment was realized in July 2011..

A three-story building constructed utilizing the “Additional 2011 experiment – Prefabricated Houses” company construction system was virtually examined using a digital seismic simulator at the technical office of the international range emeritus professor of the National Technical University of Athens, P. Karydis. The purpose of the tests was the measurement of the response of the construction system against seismic action.

The success was the result of the technical advantages :
  • Screw, which is robotically installed in all the constructive parts of the house
  • Metallic construction brackets, used to “tie” the construction
  • Oversizing of bearing structure through mechanical study
  • Reinforcement of the stress points using special computer static calculation program
