Neue Konzepte im Holzbau mit Furnierschichtholz - Die Holztragkonstruktion des Metropol Parasol in Sevilla
|Published in:||Bautechnik, October 2011, n. 10, v. 88|
New concepts in timber structures with LVL plates - The timber structure of Metropol Parasol in Seville.
The most impressive part of the Metropol Parasol from a structural engineer’s point of view as well as from the visitor’s perspective is the 150 m long and up to 28 m high timber structure of the parasols made of multi-glued laminated veneer lumber (LVL) panels. Realisation succeeded due to several constructive innovations like 2-3 mm thick polyurethane coating, easy to install node details and the world premiere of tempered epoxy resin for glued-in rods in a timber construction. Beyond this, the article elucidates special questions concerning the structural design, production and assembly.
