The paediatric hospital of Kabul is a one-level, wide building with a r.c. structure. The plan has an irregular rectangular shape, approximately 96×20 m, with a 12.50×8.50 m cantilever part.
The calculations have been carried out following the European regulations (Eurocode 2 and Eurocode 8). From a structural point of view, the critical features of the project were mainly two:
Two different 3d models for the tests on vertical and horizontal elements were defined, one for each of the two structural units; besides, the foundation was verified through a third model, which featured both the two units and the basement.
