Structural Modelling of the Railway Station “Stuttgart 21”Lucio Blandini, Torsten Noack, Albert Schuster, Werner SobekSummary:
Contemporary architecture often asks for complex double curved surfaces while the engineering of such structures often becomes a challenge. This paper illustrates the tasks that emerged and the methods developed during the engineering process of the new railway station “Stuttgart 21”. One of the main challenges in generating a structural finite element model out of the architectural design was the definition of the middle surface for the concrete structure and the need to obtain a meshed system with continuously varying shell thicknesses. Such tasks were solved using RhinoScript for the preprocessing phase and an open modular finite element program as Sofistik in the processing and postprocessing phase.Sie finden diesen Vortrag auf unserem ftp-server im geschützten Downloadbereich (Login/Password erforderlich)
