LINEAR STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS

Linear structural elements in concrete are columns and beams. Concrete columns work mainly with compressive stresses and beams with flexural stress.Many times compression and bending are combined and we have two cases: one in which compression predominates in read more...

Foundation

The foundation is the part of the structure that is in direct contact with the ground and serves to transmit its loads to the ground. There are three types of foundations, superficial, semi-deep and deep. Shallow foundations are those that are made near the read more...

Precast concrete

Precast concrete systems are the greatest exponent of mechanization in the construction sector. The prefabrication allows the setting of the mortar in optimal conditions and the reduction of the construction time of the building. Using precast concrete structures allows you to expand the range of options to create read more...

Use of concrete in architecture

The design of concrete structures in public buildings is the subject to be discussed in this article. The use of reinforced concrete in architecture allows an infinity of constructive solutions that allow the realization of large open spaces that are very useful in public buildings and whose resolution would be more complex read more...
