Secretele Turnului Eiffel simbolul Parisului rezolvate prin modelare pe calculator!!!

… oricum pt cei care doriti sa aflati mai multe … cautati studii bionice referitoare la Turnul Eiffel!!! prin 80 Romania avea buni specialisti in acest domeniu… bionica, biofizica, bioinginerie…
 
detin L’expositon de Paris 1900 de la bunici,… atat.
 
De la construirea sa, in anul 1889, Turnul Eiffel, simbolul Parisului ar fi trebuit sa ramana in picioare doar 20 de ani!!! Altii sustineau ca aceasta constructie se va darama inainte de a fi terminata. Specialistii l-au analizat si au aflat cat va mai sta in picioare.
. Studiul a fost comandat de SETE, compania care se ocupa de administrarea lui.

Scopul este acela de a vedea ce rezistenta are turnul si cat va mai sta el in picioare. Greutatea Turnului Eiffel este de 9.369 tone. La aceasta se mai adauga greutatea restaurantelor pe care le gazduieste, adica inca 3.306 tone.

Un factor care complica lucrurile este si impactul conditiilor meteo asupra sa. Fierul forjat din care este construit turnul este unul specific secolului 19. Secretul turnului sta tocmai in rezistenta acestui material. Inginerii care s-au ocupat de evaluarea „sanatatii” acestui simbol turistic sunt optimisti in privinta rezistentei acestuia.

In testele si simularile efectuate pe machete, ei chiar au dublat greutatea turnului si au vazut cum il influenteaza conditiile meteo. In cel mai rau caz, cu greutatea dublata, turnul s-ar misca, dar nu s-ar darama, afirma specialistii. Conform acestora, turistii se vor mai bucura de turnul Eiffel inca cel putin doua-trei secole.

Elaborate Software Model Addresses Burning Question: „How Is the Eiffel Tower Still Standing?”

The Eiffel Tower was intended to stand for only 20 years past its 1889 debut–in fact, the original contest rules for the design stipulated that the tower must be easily demolished. Experts at the time predicted it would come crashing down before construction was even finished. Yet it has withstood both the general hatred Parisians feel for it and the test of time, and is still standing. Specialists have constructed an incredibly elaborate software model to explore the tower’s longevity, and discovered its secret.

The study was commissioned by SETE, the Eiffel Tower Operating Company, to gather more data about the strengths and weaknesses of the iconic structure. But that’s an even more complicated task than you’d imagine. You’ve got the usual variables, like the tower’s weight (9,369 tons) and added weight from restaurants and such (another 3,306 tons), and the impact of weather on its peculiar design, but there were some unexpected struggles.

The tower is constructed not of the typical steel but of so-called „puddle iron,” a popular iron-treatment of the 19th century that involves heating and folding over sheets of iron. It performs totally differently than steel, and so the engineers had to pretty much start from scratch to build an accurate model–they called in materials engineers to reconstruct the long-forgotten puddle iron and perform various tests on it. Other problems included the ludicrous number of separate pieces in the construction (over 18,000, not including additions) and the impact of time (the tower has shrunk a few inches).

But the findings are encouraging for those who love the tower–the engineers at the Technical Center for Mechanical Industries bombarded the model with every conceivable kind of inclement weather, and even doubled the weight, just to see what would happen. In the worst cases, like with the absurd weight gain, a SETE rep notes that „the tower moves, but is not destroyed.” As it turns out, the tower’s strength is largely due to that near-forgotten puddle iron–the engineers estimate that the tower will still be standing for at least another two or three centuries.
