Angelo Ferro, Intelligent Engineering

Intelligent Engineering (IE) is a company that is developing an industrychanging technology, the Sandwich Plate System (SPS) for use as lightweight flooring for multi-storey buildings and grandstand terracing. In general, SPS Floors and SPS Terraces are 75% lighter than comparative concrete or composite systems. The dynamic performance of the SPS Floors is governed by the increased stiffness and frequency response. SPS Terraces similarly offer increased stiffness and, through crowd-structure interaction, are heavily damped.
