LOAD CALCULATION ON THEATER PLATFORM

Jan 2017 | Opera

For the opera Fantasio, produced by the Théâtre des Arts, the Théâtre du Chatelet and the Opéra Comique, directed by Thomas Jolly, ExMachina calculated a platform supporting up to 40 singers. The initial specs of that platform lead our customer to worry about the solidity once the set was built, so we were asked to imagine doable modifications need was.

Indeed, as the area below that platform was very busy, the pillars had to be as thin as possible, and no visible bracing was possible.

ExMachina studied the vertical solidity of the platform, but also the buckling effect and the bolts, all according to the EUROCODE.
