Design of a prototype for the doors of the organ of the Cathedral of Tarragona
Rights accessOpen Access
A real project motivated this article about analyzing, checking and designing a prototype for the stretcher of the doors of the Organ of the Cathedral of Tarragona. But its shorter length gives it more freedom to get theoretical conclusions, having no information and details from a longer analysis and new details founded during future site works. The main topic developed in this article the structural design of the old doors of the Organ, which have to be placed again in their original position. But as in other historical projects, is always a good beginning to research similar cases that can give further information. That’s why some cases were compared sharing same static conditions in order to find advantages to design a better structure using as less material as possible. Some static values were checked and compared, maintaining advantageous standards while doing the changes that were proved as positive to improve the new design of the doors.
