Review of Architecture and Structural Engineering.

With this annual package you will receive the DETAIL structure 01/2017 and the DETAIL structure 02/2017.


DETAIL structure 01/2017

When architecture comes up in conversation, the topic is rarely so-called functional buildings. At the same time, our environment is shaped not only by concert halls and museums, but also railway stations, bridges and power plants. Loadbearing structures and spatial effect are very much linked in such buildings, which means that convincing solutions mainly come about only as the result of close collaboration between structural ­engineers and architects.

In accord with the basic concept of Detailstructure, the project discussions in this issue focus on the role of the structural engineer. Roof and supports work together as a system in the central station in The Hague, with its glass-covered roof construction supported on tree columns and composed of rhombic panels. In Surrey, Canada, an extremely slim, timber suspended roof describes a long vertical curve over swimming pools serving families and competitive swimmers - and succeeds in overcoming wind uplift forces. The exceedingly slender steel shaft of the new observation tower in Brighton, on which visitors slide up into the sky in a glazed cockpit, required special engineering measures to dampen ­vibrations. All the projects clearly show how engineers overcome structural challenges and contribute to a successful completed project.

Structural engineers are involved across the full spectrum of construction, from tunnels to religious architecture, and often determine the overall effect created by these projects. The gridshell of the new parish church in Holzkirchen immediately strikes the eye as an interesting 3D structure. The complexity and structural efficiency of the GLT construction become clear upon closer examination.

The ingenuity of the ultra-thin UHPC roof elements protecting the new TGV station in Montpellier from rain and sun shows itself in the distribution of the perforations in the precast units, which not only fulfils the structural engineering requirements but also varies to take the path of the sun into account. Various temporary support systems were developed and designed for the construction phases of the high-speed train viaduct over the Almonte valley in Spain. With nothing left of them to see after completion, it is almost regrettable that only the builders and designers can recall these exciting intermediate stages.
