Materials and Structure types
OSES engineers work with various structural materials, including wood, concrete, masonry, and steel. for analysis and design of:
It is important to ensure that all engineering projects completed by our structural engineering firm are safe, stable, and built to last.
Seismic Retrofits & Reinforcements, Examples
Retrofit and research works took place at several locations in highly earthquake-prone Haiti. These projects included the design of a typical house for 750 houses were built in Jacmel and Port Au Prince, another typical house using local materials in Haiti, a historical HRC office building in Jacmel, retrofitting of two existing health centers in Marbial and Lafond. Elastic and plastic structural analyses of an existing two-story, 550-square-meter building in Jacmel.
After the 2010 earthquake that struck Haiti, our team evaluated the existing protection techniques that were used for specific sites and regions, such as the performance of the colombage (half-timbering) construction technique.
Using information obtained during site investigations, OSES Engineering designed two new health centers in the Marbial and Lafond areas of Haiti. These buildings were designed to withstand their particular wind and seismic environment, using a hybrid wood-reinforced masonry system that resists seismic and hurricane forces.
Large-scale engineering projects often require Sustainable Engineering. As part of our commitment to socially-responsible engineering, we provide this service for all clients who need it. Our team is flexible and takes environmental considerations to minimize ecological damage. One example is WETSS which eliminates all wind power adverse ecological effects.
