TESTING OF THE LONG-TERM BEHAVIOUR OF THE PLASTIC PRODUCTS USED IN THE STRUCTURES FOR THE MUNICH OLYMPIAD, AND DRAWING UP OF A PROOF OF EXPERIENCE

UEBERPRUEFUNG DES LANGZEITVERHALTENS DER BEI DEN BAUTEN FUER DIE OLYMPIADE IN MUENCHEN VERWENDETEN KUNSTSTOFFERZEUGNISSE UND AUFSTELLUNG EINES ERFAHRUNGSNACHWEISES

IN THE STRUCTURES FOR THE 1972 OLYMPICS IN MUNICH PLASTIC MATERIALS WERE USED IN LARGE QUANTITIES AND IN SOME CASES NEW FORMS: ROOFS WITH A LARGE SURFACE AREA, SEALS, GUTTERS, SANITARY UNITS, PARAPETS, SEATING, FLOOR-COVERING, SWIMMING BATHS, CHANGING ROOMS, CUPBOARDS AND THE LIKE. STRESS ON THESE DURING THE OLYMPIC GAMES WILL SOMETIMES BE ENORMOUS. CHECKING OF THE STRESS SHORTLY AFTER THE GAMES WILL PROVIDE DATA ON THE HARD-WEARING PROPERTIES UNDER STRESS. BECAUSE OF THE LARGE NUMBER OF ITEMS AND SURFACES, REPRESENTATIVE DATA CAN BE OBTAINED WHICH ARE USEFUL FOR EVALUATING THE BEHAVIOUR OF PLASTIC MATERIALS. THE STRUCTURES FOR THE OLYMPICS IN MUNICH OFFER THE SOLE OPPORTUNITY OF OBSERVING, CHECKING AND COMPARING THESE CONCENTRATED APPLICATIONS OF PLASTICS IN ONE PLACE. PLAN OF WORK: 1) DETERMINATION OF THE USE OF PLASTICS (IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE IBK SYSTEM OF CHECKING EXPERIENCE) IN 1972 BEFORE THE START OF THE GAMES AND DOCUMENTATION OF THE CONDITION (PHOTOS, SKETCHES); 2) - CHECKING OF THESE USES 1972/3 AFTER THE END OF THE GAMES AND BEFORE THE PERMANENT RESIDENTS MOVE INTO THE PRESENT OLYMPIC VILLAGE. SECOND DOCUMENTATION OF CONDITION (FOR POSSIBLE LATER CHECKS). THE CHECKS ARE TO BE CARRIED OUT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SAME EVALUATION CRITERIA AS IN THE RESEARCH PROJECT "LONG-TERM BEHAVIOUR OF THE OUTSIDES OF BUILDINGS", WHICH WAS COMPLETED IN 1971: EXPERT OPINION, IMPERVIOUSNESS, INCORPORATION MEASURES, STRENGTHENING, AND MAINTENANCE OF THE STRUCTURAL FUNCTION. AFTER EACH STUDY THE RESULTS WILL BE LISTED AND COMPARED.
