Abstract
The structure of the concrete floor presented in this paper consists of a thin funicular vault, quadrilateral in plan, supported on its four corners, and stiffened by a system of “ribs” walls on its extrados. The structural prototype is completed with tension ties, which link the supports and absorb the horizontal thrusts of the funicular shell. It is a prototype for the NEST-HiLo project to be realized late 2015 in Dübendorf, Switzerland. The solution is inspired by built examples in tile ...
