Cruise Terminal | Cruise Center 8 | Warnemünde, Germany
In addition to the cruise terminal located at Berth 7, a second cruise ship check-in terminal was constructed in Warnemünde. There are occasions when three ships may call at the same time.

StructureThe new terminal is a four-sided, transparent filigree structure which includes passport, customs, and ticketing facilities. On the land side, solid box structures for building services and restroom facilities were constructed.
The primary supporting structure includes V-shaped tubular steel columns supporting I-beam truss girders. Due to poor soil conditions in the port area, the columns are further supported on piles.
In addition to the check-in hall, there is a large service building for baggage handling as well as customs, police, and port personnel. The glazed terminal building roof provides a narrow covering over the entire terminal building but has no structural connection to it.
With the trapezoidal building shape, the architect has additionally provided a terminal wharf.

The support conditions of a beam subjected to bending are essential for its resistance to lateral-torsional buckling.
For the joint components, it is possible to check whether the stability failure is relevant (requires the Structure Stability add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9).
In this case, the critical load factor for all analyzed load combinations and the selected number of mode shapes is calculated for the connection model. The smallest critical load factor is compared with the limit value 15 from the standard EN 1993‑1‑1, Clause 5. Furthermore, a user-defined adjustment of the limit value is possible. Moreover, the corresponding mode shapes are displayed graphically as the result of the stability analysis.
For the stability analysis, an adapted surface model is used to specifically recognize the local buckling shapes. The model of the stability analysis, including the results, can also be saved and used as a separate model file.
- What is the difference between the RF‑/STEEL and RF‑/STEEL EC3 add-on modules?
- I compare the flexural buckling design according to the equivalent member method and the internal forces according to the linear static analysis with the stress calculation according to the second-order analysis including imperfections. The differences are very large. What is the reason?
- Is it possible to calculate the weld stresses between surfaces with RFEM 6?
- How can I neglect torsion in the steel and timber design?
- Is it possible to display the deformation analysis of a surface (limit 0.5‰)?
- How do I perform stability analysis to determine the critical load factor in RFEM 6?
- How can I optimize cross-sections within the steel design?
- Where can I find the materials for the corresponding National Annexes in RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9?
- How do I apply wind load on members of open structures?
- Is it also possible to use RF‑/TOWER Loading without the other TOWER add-on modules?
