Structures Analysed with Dlubal Software

  • Customer Project

Customer Project

The entrance structure to Kleinwelka Dinosaur Park near Bautzen, Germany has a total height of 72 ft and resembles mitosis. Mitosis is a type of cell division and the origin of life. The bionic structure consists of 1,389 steel tube members assembled together at 269 joints.

Model

A total of 92.6 tons of steel were used for the project. The translucent roof, with an overall surface area around 24,757 ft², consists of 463 ETFE foil cushions.

In addition to the entrance area, a souvenir shop, restrooms, and adventure area, as well as a gallery, are available in the building. Visitors will also notice a colossal Spinosaurus welcoming them at the main entrance.

Stahlbau Hahner GmbH in Petersberg and rimpf Architektur in Hamburg received an award for the structure at "Deutscher Verzinkerpreis 2017" (3rd place, Architecture). The engineers of zapf & co. from Strausberg were responsible for the structural analysis of the steel structure, as well as the foil cushions. The spatial structure was analyzed in RSTAB and the cushions in Easy.

The "Mitoseum" is a spectacular yet eco-friendly lightweight steel and membrane construction.
