During the second quarter of the year, the CircularBuild project continued to conduct functional validation tests by preparing the transportation of the test specimen to be submitted to the fire resistance test at the facilities of the Norwegian RISE laboratory, and the seismic performance test to be performed at the facilities of the Laboratório Nacional de Engenharia Civil de Lisboa – LNEC, which took place at the beginning of the third quarter of this year.
The seismic performance test was carried out at the premises of the earthquake department, on the 26th and 27th of July, with the LNEC team responsible for the preparation, monitoring, and validation of the test, as with CONCEXEC, the promoter and creator of the patented prefabricated modular construction solution, on which the development of the CircularBuild construction solution is based.
The execution of this test, focused on the preparation and monitoring of a two-storey full-scale prototype, fixed and built on the seismic table, and integrating loads on the intermediate floor, was gradually submitted to seismic simulations in accordance with the standards and regulations affecting the building.
Although the formalisation of the results by LNEC will only occur at the beginning of the last quarter of this year, the experts’ opinion by the end of the test is unanimous: the results have definitely exceeded their expectations.
By the end of 2022, the results of the seismic performance test and the status of the fire resistance test in the RISE laboratory will be communicated.
