Transcript of "Civil engineering"

  1. 1. Maria Antocinº 39293, LC11D2012/2013
  2. 2. Civil engineering is a professionalengineering discipline that deals with thedesign, construction, and maintenance of thephysical and naturally built environment,including works like roads, bridges, canals,dams and buildings.
  3. 3. to ensure thehealth andsafety ofworkers atwork
  4. 4. The Germans HeikeMutter and Ulrich Genthdecided to build a rollercoaster in Germany,which will allow people towalk on feet.The idea is really paradoxical becauseroller coasters are closely linked to highspeeds, while walking is linked to lowerspeeds. It was this contrast that gave itits name: Tiger and Turtle
  5. 5. The chosen localization for theconstruction was the highestpeak in the park Heinrich-Hildebrand-Höhe in Duisburg,astrategic point where it’spossible to see the curves as asignature supported over thehill, bringing instantaneously tomind the thought of dynamicsand speed.
  6. 6. However, as we approach the Tiger andTurtle, it’s surprising to discover that theroller coaster is all made of stairs. Thecurves are paths full of staircases made tobe hiked on feet. The visitor goes up on apath that reaches the highest point (45meters), where he can enjoy a wonderful view of the Ruhr area.
