Customer Project

In June 2018, a new and unique lookout tower by world-famous architect Martin Rajniš opened in the Prague municipal district of Kyje. When designing the tower, maximum emphasis was placed on the use of natural and renewable material.The lookout tower structure is constructed with acacia logs 3.15 inches in diameter.  The main supporting structure includes three legs, where a spiral staircase is also suspended. The tower legs are made of a lattice structure in the shape of an elongated barrel. At the top, the legs are interconnected with three steel hoops and a triangular steel structure.The tower is 77.1 ft high with the observation platform located 65.5 feet above ground elevation. The observation tower can hold up to 9 people during typical operation.

Model

Structural Analysis

The RFEM model was initially created by importing the architectural model from AutoCAD. End releases were conservatively applied to all members even though many members overlap.

The RFEM calculation included a second-order analysis with the Picard method. For the design, a possible progressive collapse of the structure was taken into consideration where one of the highly loaded elements may fail (break). The model was also used to verify the various construction stages when installing the structure with cranes.
