Euro 2012, Soccer stadium in Donetsk

Two young lecturers of Donbass State Academy of Architecture received awards from the president for their development of the Euro-2012 rooftops for soccer stadiums. Candidates of Technical Sciences Vadim Kasimov and Yuri Kalmykov included in a group of four Ukrainian scientists who did the calculations for the construction of roofs for domestic stadiums.  They made some of the reinforcement layouts of the roof with sensors that show the deformation of the stadium from the snow, rain or strong wind. With these calculations, other architects can quickly create roofs of any design.  “The main thing to withstand not only its own weight, but also a burden on the weather. Here’s the little hooks on the part of their almost not visible, which can hang the weights of different weights. This we have tested, as the pressure is distributed in each section of the roof “, – explained to us by Vadim Kasimov. Special equipment for testing the stadium roof in Ukraine yet, so developers twisted scrap materials: snow drifts portrayed cellophane bags with sand, and the struts of the roof were put on by champagne corks.  Meanwhile, development of Donetsk scientists have become interested colleagues from Poland, who also are going to lay all of their stadiums.
