Modern building houses exhibition premises serving Bernard Arnault´s art collection. The building is located in Paris on avenue Mahatma Gandhi, Bois de Boulogne, on the axis Tour Eiffel – Défense. Frank O´ Gehry & Partners are architects; Engineers of facades are RFR a T/E/S/S Companies. The building has been built by Vinci construction Company. Glass enclosures have been delivered by Sipral Company, for which we solved structural design and analysis of structures bearing glass enclosures.
We worked in a Femap-Nastran analysis environment and the results were modified and exported into Ansys data format. Graphical tasks were solved using Rhinoceros and SolidWorks environment. Tasks had to be solved with great flexibility and innovation in cooperation with other members of the design team with whom we shared data. All of the computations were analysed on theoretical basis. The analyses needed the cooperation of more experts in numerical analysis on both sides of Nastran and Ansys. It was a team work.
