Newsletter November 2022 - Tackling constraint effects with SOFiSTiK

Dear SOFiSTiK users, dear interested parties,

take the last opportunity to sign up for our upcoming webinar "Constraint effects in waterproof tunnels analysed with non-linear material in SOFiSTiK". In this webinar about the calculation of Lysaker Station of the Fornebu Metro Line undertaken by COWI AS (Oslo),  Raul Rodriguez of COWI will discuss the project and the challenges faced during the design.
Usually, the constraint effects due to shrinkage are approached by simplified rules from experience or formulas from the standards, which provide a minimum reinforcement to control the cracking. However, these approaches are not adequate nor optimal when facing complex geometries which are also affected by other loads such as high water pressure. This was the motivation for COWI to approach the problem of the constraint effects by using area models in SOFiSTiK with a non-linear material. Register below to gain insight into COWI's practical experiences at the Fornebu metro line

We're looking forward to seeing you at the webinar.

Your SOFiSTiK Team
