Analysis for the recovery of the roofing of the Olympic Stadium for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic games. The stadium, with its undulated roofing of an atypical arched structure, has a capacity for 47.000 spectators.
Rio de Janeiro - BRAZIL
Emasa Engineering was hired to analyse the design, calculations and execution of the steel structure’s connections for the roofing of the stadium and of the elements installed for the recovery.
The structure has 36000m2 of area and an atypical structural system composed of a large quantity of elements. Works were also performed closely to the general verification of the project and its global stability, aiming to, in conjunction with the field inspections, identify hidden structural deficiencies along the recovery process.
This was a work of great complexity due to the large number of connections and all the difficulties natural to any recovery work.
