The need to know the architectural features and the structural behaviour of the pilot building before applying the e-SAFE technology led to the construction of two distinct physical study models: (a) the architectural model and (b) the structural model. Both models were built on the same scale of representation (1:50). Moreover, the necessity to verify the reaction of the Reinforced Concrete (RC) structure to earthquake motions – with or without the application of e-SAFE technology (in particular e-CLT) – was satisfied with the construction of third model (c): a portion of the structural frame, representing a generic two-storey, one-bay RC frame. This latter model of the RC frame was made on a more detailed scale (1:10) by means of a 3D printer and it was implemented in two steps.
This Deliverable describes how the 3D physical and virtual models have been used for the knowledge of the pilot building and the control and sharing of the first design prefiguration.
