Lightweight steel structures at university

Viitorul structurilor metalice usoare

For over 25 years, Unic Rotarex® has been a leader in the lightweight steel structures industry. One of the factors that set us apart is our collaboration with university professors from the University  of Construction in Iasi. At the heart of this collaboration is a shared passion for innovation and a commitment to educating the next generation of engineers and architects.

At the University of Iasi, there is a seismic testing platform, and as you already know, we took the opportunity to demonstrate the strength of lightweight steel structures by testing a Unic Rotarex® house structure on this platform. The result was not only proof of the strength of the structures we produced but also a valuable learning experience for both students and teachers.

The decision to subject one of the Unic Rotarex® lightweight steel structures to rigorous seismic testing produced remarkable results, proving once again that our structures are suitable even in earthquake-prone areas. The collaboration paid off when the university professors documented the seismic test results. A scientific paper was elaborated, focusing on the earthquake resistance of light steel structures.

The testing done on the structures we produced did not stop at the scientific article. The tested structure remained at the university, where it continues to be a valuable educational tool. Students have the opportunity to study the structure up close, gaining practical knowledge about the world of lightweight steel structures. This hands-on experience is invaluable for future engineers and architects, and we are glad to already be part of the future of construction.
