Parametric design Wintrack foundations

Heijmans is working on the newest TENNET project: Wintrack. This new power line will be constructed using a new type of mast, which needs a new type of foundation to stand on. MOCS has automated the design of these foundations using parametric design. This parametric design can be manipulated in an intuitive interface. From this interface, calculations in SCIA and D-Foundations can be performed, as well as a number of other civil calculations. Because the design process has been fully automated, it is also possible to optimise the design using special optimisation algorithms. By storing the current designs in an online database, every engineer works with the same information, and perform calculations defined in one central place. The design lead time of a foundation has been improved from two weeks by hand to two minutes.
