The latest content from our journal Steel Construction 02/2017: Kienlesberg Bridge in Ulm, Germany

Kienlesberg Bridge is the new link for trams, pedestrians and cyclists between the inner city and the science centre in the north-west of Ulm. The bridge crosses a railway junction near the main station and a new high-speed rail link.

The geometric boundary conditions lead to unequal spans and complex alignments. Therefore, the scheme that won the design competition, which is now under construction, proposed a bridge made of steel.

Special calculations and details were necessary for dynamic and noise control reasons. The bridge is being built using incremental launching.

Massive versus lightweight building: the latest investigations of (ecological) sustainability assessment

Over recent years, the authors have released various research findings concerning the sustainability of masonry construction for detached houses and apartment buildings in comparison with alternative construction methods (timber, reinforced concrete). Meanwhile, in cooperation between the Institute for Concrete and Masonry Structures, TU Darmstadt, and its spinoff LCEE Life Cycle Engineering Experts, these analyses have been merged to a further study with increased consideration of all relevant construction methods for multi-floor residential buildings.

Dealing with natural hazards along federal and state roads in Bavaria

Dealing with natural hazards along federal and state roads in Bavaria

Roads in the municipal Berchtesgaden are among the traffic infrastructure in Germany most highly endangered by natural hazards. Landslide, avalanche, rockfall and debris flow events led to repeated accidents and road closures. In order to improve the safety of main roads, a three-stage approach has been introduced by the responsible road authority, especially in the light of finding the most suitable and sustainable solutions quickly. The main criteria for the entire design phase of any measure have always been the necessary level of protection, reasonable costs and environmental compatibility. Matching all these requirements is critical for rapid construction and therefore a reasonable use of resources.

Design and construction of the complex steel structure for the Amager Bakke waste-to-energy plant

Design and construction of the complex steel structure for the Amager Bakke waste-to-energy plant

Amager Bakke (English: Amager slope) is the name of Copenhagen's new waste-to-energy-plant located on the Amager peninsula. Once finished, it will be one of the largest incinerators in northern Europe and will be used for the combined production of district heat and electricity. On top of the waste-to-energy plant there will be a landscaped park featuring artificial ski slopes and a viewing platform. The support structure is mainly formed by a steelwork. The model-based design and construction of the complex, three-dimensional steel structure proved to be a challenging task for all the engineers and companies involved.

Footbridge 2017 in Berlin

The deadline for submission of abstracts and for registering to submit a bridge design is extended until 15 January 2017!

The reason for this is that the organiser had several requests from colleagues who would like to submit but will still be on vacation until January 6th.
