The building "Valvole a Tampone" and the structure "Frantumazione dell’Argilla" were built inside the cement plant of CEMENTOS Y CONCRETOS Moctezuma S.A. de C.V. located in Veracruz (Mexico).
Since Mexico is a highly seismic country (0,55g of acceleration plateau at the building site) and because of the very high loads of the structures, it was necessary to make adjustments both during the design and dimensioning phase as well as in the construction drawing phase.
For the planning of the various structures of "Valvole a Tampone" and “Frantumazione dell’Argilla” both American regulations (ACI 318-11, ASCE 7-10) and Mexican regulations (CFE Sismo 08 and CFE_Viento_08) were used.
