Title
(EN) PREMANUFACTURED STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS
(FR) ELEMENTS DE CONSTRUCTION PREFABRIQUES
Abstract
(EN)
A structural element that may be used to reinforce those structures or portions of structures that respond to loads in the manner of a diaphragm or shell. The units are particularly appropriate in designing structures to adequately resist earthquake, wind and other loads. The structural elements may be installed in a new building or retrofitted in existing buildings. The element (10) has top and bottom members (12, 14) and two side members (16, 18) in a substantially rectangular configuration, the top and bottom members (12, 14) have flat top and bottom exterior surfaces. Inclined brace members (20, 22) fit within the rectangular configuration connected to the top and bottom members (12, 14) and the two side members (16, 18) to form a structurally rigid element. The elements (10) may be made from any material and may be joined by any method that provides the necessary rigidity. Preferably the elements are premanufactured in the factory.
(FR)
Elément de construction s'utilisant pour renforcer les structures ou parties de structures qui réagissent à des charges à la manière de parois moulées ou d'une coque. Ces éléments conviennent particulièrement à la conception de structures résistant de manière adéquate aux séismes, au vent et à d'autres charges, et peuvent être installés dans de nouveaux bâtiments ou adaptés à des bâtiments existants. Ledit élément (10) comporte des parties supérieure et inférieure (12, 14), ainsi que deux parties latérales (16, 18) selon une configuration sensiblement rectangulaire. Les parties supérieure et inférieure (12, 14) présentent des surfaces externes supérieure et inférieure planes. Des entretoises inclinées (20, 22) s'adaptent dans cette configuration rectangulaire et sont accouplées aux parties supérieure et inférieure (12, 14) ainsi qu'aux parties latérales (16, 18) afin de former un élément de structure rigide. Lesdits éléments de construction (10) peuvent être fabriqués en n'importe quel matériau et accouplés par tout procédé assurant la rigidité requise. Ils sont de préférence préfabriqués à l'usine.
