Paper Title:
The Acrylic Spike Design of British Pavilion, 2010 EXPO
  Abstract

Innovative architectural acrylic spike application leads to a great challenge for structural engineers for the structural design of Shanghai Expo British pavilion. A set of mechanical properties has been proposed to provide a reference for the application of acrylic material in structure design area. The wind tunnel, fatigue and creep tests and research for acrylic spike were carried out to determine the wind load effect of spike and ensure that the spikes are not damaged under fatigue and creep effects during 1.5 years service period.
