Steel bridges cost a lot of money to build. It's been estimated that the new motorway viaduct near Oberthulba in Bavaria will cost around 85 million Euros. Planners know that in order to save on material costs, build components should be designed with as much openwork as possible, whilst maintaining stability. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have designed a new test rig for the massive parts in order to help the structural engineers gather stress data for their calculations.
Extreme gusts of wind of more than 40 km per hour are common on Hamburg's footpaths. Measurements undertaken by Professor Felix Ament and Dr. Sarah Wiesner from the Center for Earth System Research and Sustainability (CEN) at Universität Hamburg demonstrate this. Their current measuring campaign has yielded data for a calculation model capable of determining wind conditions at specific locations with a hitherto unknown level of detail.
