Field trip Sweco: Monitoring tilting Old Church Delft

  • Monday 1 October 2018, 13:30 - 17:00
  • Max 25 participants
  • Registration fee: € 25,00
  • Meeting point: Lobby TU Delft Aula Congress Centre. Transportation will be arranged.
  • Departure time: 13:30

The tower of the Oude Kerk was built at the end of the 13th century on a subdued part of the canal. Already during construction, the tower collapsed, after which the builders have finished the tower as much as possible. The tilt is currently almost 3 m at the tip of the tower.

The municipality of Delft is the manager of the tower and has been commissioned by TNO and Deltares to conduct research into the stability of the tower. This has shown that the tower can remain in motion for centuries, with the inclination increasing even further. Sweco has been carrying out measurements since 2001 to monitor the tilt.

During the construction of the railway tunnel in Delft, at 140 m distance, the tower fell outside the area that was monitored by the contractor. That is why the monitoring of the inclined position has been intensified by the use of continuous measuring systems. With sensors, Sweco measures the inclination and setting of the tower every ten minutes with high accuracy, to signal changes in the dislocation movement early and thus inform the municipality about the condition of the tower.

Field trip: Municipality Delft, Spoorzone/3D Cadastre

  • Tuesday 2 October 2018, Tuesday, 9:00-12:00
  • Max 25 participants
  • Registration fee: € 25,00
  • Meeting point: Lobby TU Delft Aula Congress Centre. Transportation will be arranged.
  • Departure time: 08:45

We will take you to the heart of the Delft Railway Area project (“Spoorzone Delft”), the new building of the combined railway station/municipal offices of the city of Delft. TU Delft and the Dutch Cadastre carried out a pilot in 2016 in which the 3D map of the new building was registered with the Cadastre. This was a first of its kind in the Netherlands. Never before had a three dimensional map been legally registered. The building ownership is with three different proprietors and covers a relatively small surface. This made the structure uniquely suitable for the pilot. During the excursion a presentation will be given about the pilot, followed by a tour of the municipal offices and the new railway station, including the underground bicycle park for 5000 bicycles and the railway platforms in the tunnel.

Fieldtrip: Rijkswaterstaat, Maeslantkering Datalab

  • Wednesday 3 October 2018, 8:30 - 12:30
  • Max 35 participants
  • Registration fee: € 25,00
  • Meeting point: Lobby TU Delft Aula Congress Centre. Transportation will be arranged.
  • Departure time: 8:30

The program consists of a guided tour at Maeslantkering and a presentation on the Maeslantkering and Datalab.

The Maeslantkering is a storm surge barrier on the Nieuwe Waterweg, Netherlands, controlled by a supercomputer. It closes if the city of Rotterdam is threatened by floods and is part of the Delta Works. It is one of largest moving structures on Earth, rivalling the Green Bank Telescope in the United States and the Bagger 288 excavator in Germany.
On 10 May 1997, after six years of construction, Queen Beatrix opened the Maeslantkering. The Maeslantkering is expected to be closed once every ten years due to a storm surge. The barrier is closed for testing once a year, usually in the end of September or the beginning of October, just before the beginning of the storm season mid-October. The software that drives it is written in C++ and consists of 200,000 lines of code for the operational system and 250,000 lines of code for the simulation systems. The barrier is designed to withstand a storm that has an occurrence of only once in 10,000 years (source: Wikipedia). 

 

Field trip:  Municipality Rotterdam, 3D-SDI/ SmartCity

  • Wednesday 3 October 2018, 14:00 - 17:30
  • Max 20 participants
  • Registration fee: € 25,00
  • Please bring your passport
  • Meeting point: Lobby TU Delft Aula Congress Centre. Transportation will be arranged.
  • Departure time: 13:15

We are happy to welcome you in our modern and innovative city; Rotterdam. During this afternoon we will discuss themes like 3D city modelling, Smart Cities and the merger of geo-information and business intelligence. We will show results, present our vision but will also facilitate discussions, answer questions and we are also curious to learn from your experiences! We will provide an informative but informal setting on the 35th floor of our office located in “the Rotterdam”; with 160.000 m2 the largest building in the Netherlands. From here you will have a fantastic panoramic view of the city. 

Note: This program will elaborate on the presentation of Joris Goos during the planar program of Geo-Delft entitled: Digital City Rotterdam: new technologies, smart collaborations (Scheduled on Monday morning 1st of October)

Presentors: 
Jane Hermans – van Ree
Timo Erinkveld (Rotterdam 3D)
Roland van der Heijden (Digital City)
Frank Vieveen (Smart City)
Joris Goos (Business Intelligence) 

Location:

Field trip: High-accuracy 3D mapping of the complete railway corridor

  • Thursday 4 October 2018, 14:00 - 17:00
  • Max 25 participants
  • Registration fee: € 25,00
  • Meeting point: Lobby TU Delft Aula Congress Centre. Transportation will be arranged.
  • Departure time: 13:30

Rila technology:

With the Rila technology a digital twin of the railinfrastructure can be produced efficiently. Capturing of the data is possible without disturbing the existing train operation. Instead of that, the existing train operation is used. 
The dataset produced brings the railway to the desktop of rail professionals, giving them the opportunity to engineer and manage the rail assets in the most efficient way.

During the excursion the operation op Rila in passenger service will be demonstrated. The technology used and results will be further explained and presented.

Short introduction about the Rila technology can be watched via the website www.fugro.com/raildata  or directly via the link https://youtu.be/xH956yoN-L8
