The task was to perform structural verification of the one of the highest bronze statues ever built in the Czech Republic. A complex analysis was requested including assessment of vibration loads during transportation, evaluation of weather loading and seismic loading, and design of the statue wall thicknesses.
The goal of the project was to develop affordable and reusable actuators (so-called hold down & release mechanism) that can be used for testing of space mechanisms in phase of their development. These special actuators are capable to hold high preload and subsequently release it requiring very small force.
The task was to identify a root cause of the polycarbonate window failure during strong wind. The building stands in the highlands, where the strong winds often flow from one direction. In a certain wind direction, the vacuum deformed the window panel so much that it was released from its holders.
