Connecting people and communities with efficient infrastructure is a fundamental basis for ensuring the future prosperity and development of our societies. Respect for the resources and environment, as well as the assessment of the effects of climate change, are important considerations in developing sustainable solutions.
Significant progress has been made in the technology for sea-crossing infrastructure, enabling longer water crossings while still being economical to build and operate. The boundaries of the technology have been pushed significantly in recent years with projects like the new world-record suspension bridge 1915 Çanakkale Bridge currently under construction in Turkey and the ongoing feasibility studies for Tsing Lung Bridge (part of Route 11) in Hong Kong SAR. On the Ferry Free E39 project in Norway, the conditions are so challenging that technology from many different areas needs to be combined in innovative ways. One of the most effective solutions to overcome constructing foundations on more than 500 m of water depth is to adopt floating structures to support the roadway.
This presentation will look deeper into some of the ongoing state-of-the-art projects within sea-crossings offering insights from the engineering design process. The presentation will also touch upon digitalization and how new digital tools are being implemented in developing solutions for tomorrow's sustainable societies.
Dr. Tina Vejrum is Vice President in COWI, responsible for major international bridge projects. Starting her career as a structural engineer on the Great Belt Fixed Link, Dr. Vejrum has been involved in major bridge projects globally. A highlight in Dr. Vejrum's career as a bridge designer is the record span Stonecutters Bridge in Hong Kong SAR – a project she worked on for 10 years from concept design through detailed design and concluded with three years on-site during the construction phase. Today she is heading COWI's international team of bridge designers working on some of the largest and most complex sea-crossings in the world.
In addition, Dr Vejrum is active in many professional associations. Notably, as a Fellow of the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering ("IABSE") with 2,700 members in over 100 countries where she holds the position as Vice President as well as Chair of the Danish Group of IABSE.
