The use of Angelina beams allows a new architectural expression. Structures are lightened and spans increased, thus open spaces by increased size of column-free floor areas.
This flexibility goes together with the functionality of allowing technical installations (pipes and ducts) to pass through the openings. The lightweight appearance of Angelina beams, combined with their high strength, stimulates the architects to new structural forms.
The development of a high-performance design and calculation tool (Angelina™software), available to design offices and architects, favors the use of Angelina™ beams. The methods adopted in this software exploit the results of tests on full-size beams and of numerous numerical simulations. The implemented methods allow the optimization of weight (through section size, opening depth, width and distance) and steel grade adapted to the project’s requirements. This optimization leads to the highest reduction of material consumption and cost.
