The pyramidal structure has been tested in wind tunnel demonstrating a significant advantage over any other structure. The only exception has been the dome since a hemisphere or dome ideally has the same advantages. But in practice, when making a house or a shelter, the pyramid has smooth faces, while the domes have a circular arc, which makes it difficult to get materials whose surface fits without gaps where the wind can "hook." So most capsules or domes, actually have a series of drawbacks, while the pyramid resists more both in structure and in its parts. The pyramidal architecture has been in the remote past, as much as now, the ultimate paradigm of polyvalent architecture. The Pyramidhouse has a series of advantages that no other construction can offer. 1) PYRAMIDAL EFFECT: Nothing rots inside, is bacteriostatic, sedative, relaxing, antioxidant, antirheumatic, etc. (See Benefits). But this implies several more things that can only be appreciated through experience. Anyway, a good theoretical knowledge in this regard is essential for the engineer or architect, because it will allow to design better pyramidal buildings, safer, more functional and make sure that they will work in their aspect of "pyramidal device." The best engineers and architects are not "the most creative," but those who add creativity and aesthetics to the responsibility and accuracy of their designs. As for the pyramidal effect, they must take special care to be well informed on the subject, because problems have occurred with poorly constructed pyramids due to lack of knowledge, which in some cases has forced the owners to leave the house. No serious damage has been reported, but the inconvenience caused by inadequate materials, ignorance of the effects and how the pyramids should be used, has represented an economic loss for the people, a discredit for the construction professionals and an indirect damage to the pyramidology. 2) ANTI-SEISMIC: Earthquakes force architects to use extreme precautions when designing, but to owners it means enormous costs to realize anti-seismic structures. The properly constructed Pyramidal Houses are unparalleled in that sense because it would be necessary to open a crack so large as to swallow the whole house. It can tilt in case of an earthquake that modifies the levels of the ground, as well as they can break or fall something inside, but the structure and the walls themselves will resist without landslides. However, it is not any pyramidal structure that works, but the one that we realize with a structure analysis according to the material used. For many reasons, the structure of the pyramid house must be made of laminated wood or properly treated hardwood (parked, dried, waterproofed and fireproofed), since the use of ferromagnetic and diamagnetic metals should be avoided as much as possible. So we cannot use supports or reinforcements of steel or iron, but assemblies of aluminum, duralumin, titanium aluminum or spiky of the wood itself (spikes or dowels). Making pyramidal structures entirely of aluminum or carbon fiber to make panel assemblies as traditional constructions require costs that far exceed what is viable for the vast majority of customers. Besides, it must be taken into account that the location of the construction, according to the distance to the isogones zero, it will determine if the house should be made on fixed anchor or with the possibility of being disengaged to be reoriented. In any of the cases, the anti-seismic quality must be based on the compaction of the structure as an inextricable unit. For anchoring is accepted the use of stainless steel elements (bolts, anchors, lag screws, etc.) because it is only on the perimeter and with just a few centimeters on the base beams. 3) WIND-RESISTANT: The pyramidal shape has been tested in a wind tunnel and computer systems. An adequately anchored Pyramidhouse could withstand winds of more than 250 km/h without any damage unless the external cover is tile or other materials (sometimes forced by the "urban dictatorships," especially in Europe) that restrict the faces to be completely smooth. In this case, only the external cover would be affected, not the walls themselves, which are made of wood in exterior and interior, separated by thermoacoustic elements. Our houses usually have a uniform ceramic coating applied like paint, similar to that used in the aerospace industry, although there is a particular paint option that lightens the load and fulfills all the demands of the best roof. Special care is taken in the openings, so not to leave more protrusions than the few millimeters of the edge of windows, as well as the only hollow of the form, the entrance. The pyramidal houses must not have a back door, but any disguised system, for safety reasons, which allows the exit of the house, but without breaking the closing of the plane of the opposite face or sides from the main entry. The lines of force in ordinary constructions, remain parallel to the ground, pushing the construction and/or its parts. On the other hand, the lines of force generated by the wind push the pyramid downwards. Is enough an adequate anchoring, so that the same force of the wind is the one that keeps the pyramid house in its place.
