Tabique walls have positive note in compression tests

13 | NOV | 2015

Experimental assessment of the mechanical behaviour of simple and double Tabique walls - compression tests

Portilame, in partnership with CS Construtora and NCREP - Consultancy and Rehabilitation of Built Heritage Lda, is promoting an exploratory experimental campaign to evaluate the mechanical behaviour of Simple and Double Light Timber Frame Walls (known in Portugal as Tabique Walls), using full scale specimens.

The tests are being carried out at the Laboratory of Seismic and Structural Engineering (LESE) of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP).

 

Under the scope of this collaboration, Phase I, i.e. the work regarding the characterization of the behavior of Tabique Walls under compression forces, was concluded.

The results of this experimental work demonstrated that Tabique Walls can be used as auxiliary structural elements, capable of supporting horizontal resistant elements, such as floors or roofs.

Detailed results will be soon published in reference conferences and journals (technical and scientific) in this field.

 

PHASE II is being prepared. It aims evaluating the behavior of Tabique Walls under horizontal in-plane actions, representing, for example, the effect of a seismic action.

 

We want to highlight the importance of NCREP in the development of this campaign, a company that provides consultancy, monitoring and design services in the field of rehabilitation, which synergy with Portilame can be found here: Synergy NCREP

 

The main goals of this campaign can be found in the article published last May: Participation in experimental campaign.
