The combination Heijmans - Europoles is designing and building the new Wintrack II towers for high-voltage overhead transmission lines for their client TenneT on 240 locations in Zeeland and Groningen. Heijmans is responsible for the design of the foundations which consists per pylon of a round foundation slab on piles. The design (calcution and drawing) is fully automated. An advanced design tool is developed which enables Heijmans to design every single foundation most economically based on the local boundary conditions such as loads and soil parameters.
In this lunch lecture an insight will be given in the working and the possibilties of the design tool.
Lunch is provided by Heijmans!
See U on Wednesday May 30th!
