Certified Biodesign Structure

RESISTENCE AND COMPRESSION TESTS

Content:

  • Structural description of the application of Biodesign technology building material.
  • Analysis of materials and results of experimental tests.
  • Analysis of actual loads.

Conclusions of the study:

  • Biodesign technology provides a high degree of resistance when compared to the stresses generated by the thrusts and pressure of both the soil and the water.
  • The structure is free from extra loads caused by soil movement.
  • The structural paving made of quartz and resin is easily able to support the secondary loads.
  • The Biodesign structure has strong and signicant mechanical properties.
  • Based on the considerations set out in this study, for ordinary Biodesign projects there is no need for additional structural inspections.
