Caulmert has recently completed the structural analysis of an existing structure in order to withstand impact loads. The existing wall acts as a ‘push’ wall within an existing recycling plant and following a recent inspection the client requested the wall be strengthened. The structure was analysed using a 3D software package which allowed the engineer to easily visualise the proposed strengthening works, whilst also accurately inputting and analysing the design data.
The solution incorporated a steel frame which transferred horizontal loads into a series of brace members and down to the supporting sub structure. The wall varied in height via a series of steps from 5m to 4m. Analysis of the frame was further complimented with a series of construction drawings, specifications and designers risk assessments.
