Ladies and Gentlemen,
do you know the problem? During a discussion with colleagues, a technical term, the name of a structure or a person arises and you are quite sure: you once read a technical article about it! But perhaps you cannot remember the name of the journal and very seldom the precise issue. We have the same problem, so we make use of the Article database in our daily work. This searches in seconds our entire digital archive, currently more than 31,000 technical articles from all our journals going back to 1967. If you now want to save leafing through your personal journal archive, the article is also available as PDF.
Let us help to make your working day somewhat easier and try out our digital archive.
Good to known: Our Special Issues in english, such as for example Robustness and Safety of Concrete Structures or english Articles from our Journals such as Bauphysik or geotechnik can also be found in this database and can be purchased as PDF.
We wish you much pleasure with your researches.
Your publishers Ernst & Sohn

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.

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.
