A part of hanging pipe bridge in the basement of the CHP Niederaußem Block K (BoA): In the basement of the vessel building runs a large and densely used pipe route which hangs on a reversed pipe bridge.
The aim was to use as little steel as possible to minimize the loads for the connecting buildings. This led to a very intense optimization process during the design of the structure.
Mr. Kuitunen says:
"For this, RSTAB and its modules really proved very fast and reliable tools. Due to the good graphical view of results, we could do specific optimizations safely and quickly. As a result, we could save notable time in detailing and have well reached our original goal."
