The New York Wheel

Project Description

Mammoet works in NY at the New York Wheel, a future attraction in NY with a view on the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. The wheel is 190.5m high and is expected to be ready in 2017.

Tasks

PT, together with Mammoet, executes the calculations for the wheel. The installation calculations include 323 separate installation steps, with 11 load cases per step. In order to process and present the large amount of result data, use is made of self-written programs (in Python). In addition to the complete installation calculation, various detail calculations have been performed.
