Mercado 2 de Maio, Viseu

The scope of this project was the rehabilitation of the “Mercado 2 de Maio“, located in the city center of Viseu, in Portugal.

The steel connection presented in this project is a connection of a column with a truss, both of them in cold-formed hollow sections. There are eight members connecting to the column with eccentricities that needed to be considered in the calculation. To simulate it correctly, the connection was imported from Tekla Structures and then edited in IDEA StatiCa to make it as simple as possible.
