The seismic behaviour of BBS buildings

BBS buildings are constructed with panels of a maximum width of 1.25 m. The panels are joined to one another by mechanical fasteners. The connection between the BBS boards, which make up the walls and ceilings, is done through metal plates, nails with improved adhesion and self-drilling screws. Usage of plates with limited sizes makes handling and installation easy and, owing to the integration of a great number of mechanical connections, enhances ductility as well as the building’s capacity to dissipate energy generated by the earthquake.
