RWS Tower

Wind sensitivity
At the Oosterschelde flood defences, StabiAlert measured the 115-metre tall concrete radar tower that was built on the work island Neeltje Jans by Rijkswaterstaat, the executive agency of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment.

For the shipping radar that is built on top, Rijkswaterstaat wanted to have an accurate measurement of the movement sensitivity of the innovative concrete construction. 

With sensors at the bottom, in the middle and at the top, StabiAlert was able to measure the effects of wind on the radar tower. To provide a clear picture, the StabiFrame 3D model visualised the movements.
