Virtual Shukhov tower on Shabolovka, Moscow

Institution:
S.I. Vavilov Institute for the History of Science and Technology of the Russian Academy of Sciences

Type:
Multimedia publishing

Description:
Digital 3D model of the Shukhov Tower on Shabolovka, Moscow is developed based on laser scanning and existing documentation. The model represents accurately and in details the current state of the tower, including general geometry, construction of joints, individual deformations of elements. Also the software is developed for stereoscopic visualization of the gathered spatial data (point cloud and mesh 3D model) and additional information.
The model can be used for the historical and technical analysis of the tower’s structure, learning the history of its building, making drawings, as well as for different engineering tasks (numerical calculations of strength and stability, deformation analysis, monitoring of construction). The model and software can be also used for organization of the “Virtual Tour” on the tower.
The project was performed in 2011-2013 by the Center for Virtual History of Science and Technology of the S.I. Vavilov Institute for the History of Science and Technology of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IHST RAS, Moscow, Russia) with support of the Trimetari Consulting (St. Petersburg, Russia).

Project was performed by M. Anikushkin, E. Asharin, A. Bobkov, A. Ivanov, V. Konyshev, A. Leonov, D. Linovskiy, S. Ovcharov.
