Structurae Newsletter - 2/2018
Structurae - International Database and Gallery of Structures

Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,

Did you know that Structurae also offers case studies and reports as well as detailed product descriptions? The topics include for example structural health monitoringtunneling formwork, bridge bearingsconcreting, and many more. I have selected some interesting examples for this newsletter.

Also, to help guide us in the future development of Structurae, we have developed a short survey. Please take a few minutes of your time and tell us about your wishes and needs with regard to the use of Structurae. Survey participants also qualify for a prize draw!

Best regards,
Nicolas Janberg
Structurae Editor-in-chief / Owner

Please give us your feedback!
About the survey: Your answers help us in developing Structurae to fit your needs and wishes even more than it already does. You may even win one of five copies of the book "The World's Footbridges for Berlin" if you participate!

Case Studies and Technical Reports

Structurae has interesting case studies and technical reports on various issues involving civil, structural and bridge engineering and construction. 

Optimizing Structures with Continuous Monitoring Systems

The last few decades have seen an amazing boost in the number of existing civil-engineering structures as well as in the resistance that is required of them. Among these are larger bridges for heavier trucks, longer tunnels for accommodating more traffic, safer pipelines for transporting different materials, and wind turbines with an increased efficiency and higher capacity.

Marieholmstunneln connects the banks of the Göta älv river

One of the most interesting tunnels in Scandinavia, the Marieholmstunneln, is being realized in the city of Gothenburg. The 306 m long connection will ensure that the Göta river can be crossed quickly. The tunnel is being constructed using the immersed tube method: three tunnel sections, each more than 100 meters long, are being produced in a dry dock using a tunnel formwork carriage and will then be submerged in a trench excavated on the riverbed.

The new Hunte Bridge is Germany’s largest single-leaf bascule bridge

Between the municipality of Berne and the town of Elsfleth in the Wesermarsch administrative district northwest of Bremen, a new bascule bridge was built over the Hunte River. The bascule bridge replaces a 1951 lift bridge located at a distance of about 20 m from the new structure that no longer fulfilled today's technical requirements. [Continue Reading]

Structural health monitoring at Cugnielertobel Bridge II and Lavoitobel Bridge

Automated structural health monitoring systems have much to offer to engineers in the construction, inspection, maintenance and renovation of structures in general, and of key structural components such as bridge bearings in particular. A structure's bearings are critically important for its proper long-term performance, and any loss of functionality can quickly develop into a serious problem for the structure. [Continue Reading]
