Model

Heinz Bornemann, the customer of Dlubal Software, provides structural analysis and design for a wide range of this playground equipment. for example the 'Globe' and various types of 'Tetragode'. For the calculation of spatial supporting structures, the structural frame analysis software RSTAB is used.

Globe

The outer frame of the Globe play structure consists of eight curved glued-laminated beams of of 4 23⁄32 in / 9 29⁄64 in. The inner three-dimensional net includes the ropes 'U-Rope' developed by Berlin Seilfabrik. The outer dimensions L x W x H are approximately 14.8 ft x 14.8 ft x 16.4 ft. The analysis was performed in the add-on modules TIMBER Pro and STEEL.

Tetragode

Tetragode is a central mast play structure. A number of children can climb into great heights simultaneously. This type of Tetragode is about 21.3 ft high. The spatial rope net also consists of U-Ropes by Berliner Seilfabrik and extends from the central steel mast outwards in four directions.
