  • PROJECT NAME: Structural design of flexible expansion joints for the New Military Hospital
  • LOCATION: Santiago, Chile
  • FEATURES: Reinforced concrete structure consisting of two buildings: a 5-story base-isolated building and a fixed-base 8-story building (85,000 m2).
  • YEAR: 2007
  • CALCULATION TYPE: Calculation of solutions for all meeting points that occur between the base-isolated and the fixed-base buildings. Design of flexible pedestrian and vehicular connections between both structures, capable of accounting for differential displacements that could take place in the occurrence of an earthquake (40cm approx.)
