Customized Aluminum Structure for Jiangsu TV Station, China
At the request of Dutchrigger BV, T&E Support performed the structural analysis for an aluminum structure used in the Chinese TV station Jiangsu TV’s New Year's Eve show.
Utrecht, the Netherlands
In addition, T&E Support was responsible for supervising the installation. They utilized the finite element program RFEM and the add-on module RF-ALUMINUM to calculate and design the 3D model.
The show’s stage concept was modeled on a drop of water, symbolizing the sweat of struggle and tears of joy. The structure also resembled a drop of water and was motion-controlled. Twelve ring-like structures utilizing circular trusses were fully equipped with entertainment technology in order to transform into various shapes to match the stage performance.
