Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013

115 X Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013 - Category 2: Civil Structures 2 Short description │Aqueduct, Part of the “Westelijke Invalsweg” Project The Westelijke invalsweg has 2 x 2 lanes between the highway (A31, “Haak om Leeuwarden”) and the city of Leeuwarden. At the Westelijke Invalsweg junction with the “van Harinxmakanaal” an aqueduct is foreseen with a lower level road over about 600 metres. There are structural challenges and also design requirements. Because of the overall scale of the project, design requirements (also known as “beeldambitie document”) were set up. Within this document, the requirements for the architecture and finishing of the aqueduct are determined, such as the surface and look of the walls, the appearance of the horizontal struts in the East Entrance, and also the requirements concerning the “Green Entrance” at the west side.
