Measuring, monitoring, and analysing the performance of the world’s largest 3D printed metal structure: a 12 metre-long stainless steel bridge due to be installed across a canal in Amsterdam in 2018.

 

Researchers are measuring, monitoring, and analysing the performance of the world’s largest 3D printed metal structure: a 12 metre-long stainless steel bridge. Data from a sensor network installed on the bridge is being inputted into a ‘digital twin’ of the bridge which acts as a living computer model that imitates the physical bridge with growing accuracy in real time as the data comes in.

 

In partnership with MX3D, a 3D printing company, researchers on this project are measuring, monitoring, and analysing the performance of the world’s largest 3D printed metal structure: a 12 metre-long stainless steel bridge due to be installed across a canal in Amsterdam in 2018.

 

A sensor network has been installed on the bridge by a team of structural engineers, mathematicians, computer scientists, and statisticians from the Turing and the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction. The data from the sensors is being inputted into a ‘digital twin’ of the bridge, a living computer model which will imitate the physical bridge with growing accuracy in real time as the data comes in.
