In the last half-century we have witnessed an unprecedented boom in the construction of tall buildings and special structures, in aspects related to their architectural complexity, freedom of expression and structural sophistication. This is without doubt due to the remarkable revolution in our improved state-of-the-art design tools. More accurate and realistic numerical methods today allow for a greater certainty than ever before, the means to predict how a given structure would behave in extreme loading conditions.

Peculiarities of the national construction today are characterized not only by mentality. One of several problems is the legal vacuum, where the construction industry is now. At time when it is updating SNiPs and are currently undergoing discussions to how we will relate to the Eurocodes and correspond with them; we are in the midst of a complete change in the regulatory framework; and also determining the direction what the construction industry in Russia is going to be...

Realizing the need and broad perspectives for application of transparent structures in contemporary architecture, we offer a brief overview of facade systems from Belgian company – Reynaers Aluminium. The company owns the largest private institute for aluminum facade systems research and testing in Europe. Materials tests for compliance with international quality standards are regularly performed there. Every year the Institute conducts hundreds of tests to develop new and improve existing materials.

Creating a Comfortable Microclimate

Creating a Comfortable Microclimate

(Issue of a magazine 3/2011, page 94)

Implementation of projects of highrise buildings, which are, as a rule, modern multifunctional complex, requires the creation of comfort cooling systems with the maintenance of optimal parameters of indoor air with a high rate of coverage. However, the practice of using modern facade designs with increased, sometimes up to 100% glazing, leads to extreme conditions for comfort cooling systems, contributing to violation of the specified parameters of internal regime.

Efficiency of modern construction in recent years significantly has increased mostly due to the advantages possessed by aluminum: its specific gravity is about 3 times less than steel, a minimum design life of structures made of aluminum alloys – 80 years. Aluminum works reliably in all climatic conditions, ranging from –80 to +100° C, while it keeps its structural properties with temperature changes. Attractive appearance, short construction period, energysaving benefits of glass as a filler – all this is not a complete list of positive features of aluminum facades.
