Description on this project

The building, for its historical and constructional characteristic, is monumental and cultural interest type. Overall, it has a 1,600㎡
plant area, spreads over three levels above ground and has a total of about 13m height. The total volume is approximately 20,000㎥.


The purpose of the investigation was to:
- Determine the natural frequency of vibration of the construction site.
- Determine the natural frequency of vibration of the building in its main direction.
- Check the phenomenon of double resonance of the brick-resistance structure.
- Compare the results between obtained from vibration frequency and those from the FEM model and give an assessment of the mechanical model validation.
