Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013

141 X Nemetschek Structural User Contest 2013 - Category 2: Civil Structures Category 2: Civil Structures 2 Short description │“Ketelbrug” Movable Bridge The Ketelbrug is a bridge with a bascule bridge incorporated. The existing bascule bridge has fatigue damage and needs to be replaced. In this project a new design for the existing bridge deck must be made. The design is an orthotropic steel deck and steel main girders with a span of 23 m. The replacement of the bridge deck must take place within a weekend. The design of a bridge with a steel bridge deck is dominated by the fatigue assessment. This means a very detailed model, with a fine mesh, and a model made with only plate elements. From this model, influence lines could be exported and a fatigue assessment made.
