Upgrading schools

Actual upgrading of dozens of schools in local authorities - a school in Kfar Kama as an example: advanced seismic diagnosis for a 3-story prefab school building, including a non-linear analysis test and reference to phenomena such as the P-Delta effect, out-of-plane elements, material non-linearity , and redistribution of the loads in the various stages in order to reveal as realistic a behavior as possible of the structure during an earthquake. The chosen upgrade solution included a unique solution of steel connection details with a high energy dissipation capacity (with a sliding or yielding mechanism).
