Thanks to the MTR® System, beams are not casted in place. The system includes prefabricated composite beams made of steel, which are delivered on site from the factory, ready to be assembled easily, directly from the trucks on the pillars.
The procedure is completed by the structural column-to-beam connectors, the floor with its reinforcement and finally by the casting of concrete. All this results in a mixed structure, which offers many advantages, compared to a traditional reinforced-concrete structure.
The calculation theories and the tests of the MTR® System have been carried out in collaboration with the Politecnico of Bari, Università La Sapienza of Rome and the University of Basilicata.
What is the MTR® system?
SOFTWARE MTR® is the application software for the calculation and designing of the MTR® Beams. It is implemented in the specific production process used by Metal.Ri.
The MTR® A Beam is self-supporting during the assembly and casting phase of the floor. It has a steel bottom plate.
The MTR® T Beam has to be shuttered and propped during the assembly and casting phase of the floor. It has not the bottom plate and it is completely embedded in the cast-in place-concrete.
The MTR® C Beam is self-supporting during the assembly and casting phase of the floor. It has a concrete bottom plate.
The building system of the MTR® beams is equipped with a specific structural design software. It has been designed taking into account the production process and the technical Italian and European law.
The purpose of this software is to integrate the different exiting structural design systems in order to plan works using the MTR® technology. INFO.MTR Srl (the software department of Metal.Ri) has developed Software MTR® following the UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 quality standard requirements.
Many advantages and great safety for the customer, the structural designer and the construction manager.
A construction site of the industrialization process and works certificate "error-free."
New, more advanced in its design, more powerful in its performance
