Place of construction Fictional, somewhere in the mountains

This project has been carried out for the minor ‘creatief construeren’ in the fourth year at the ‘Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nijmegen’. In half a year, a random fictional construction had to be designed. Everything has been done by a group of five students, from the art impression up to the calculating with RFEM and the modeling in Tekla. The Crescent is a semi-circular bridge between two mountains. The concrete deck consisting of 12 moths is suspended by guy-wireons a 200 meter high steel pylon. The bridge counts two lanes and spans a length of 75 meters. Ultimately, the Tekla model is used as the basis for a VR presentation in Unity.
