Complex Structures

Complex Structures


stonework construction (walls, piers, columns) reinforced with ferroconcrete elements that work together with the masonry.

Complex structures are used when significantly increased supporting power is required for stone constructions without an increase in dimension. This is particularly important for the walls of buildings in earthquake-prone regions. The advantage of complex structures over those of stone alone is greater strength. However, complex construction requires more labor than construction with precast reinforced concrete.
