The reconstruction and construction of port infrastructure in the City of Zadar is a significant project aimed at enhancing the port’s capabilities and improving its infrastructure.
One of the critical components of this project is the reconstruction of the Coast of King Petar Krešimir IV and the extension of the pier.
To ensure the project’s success, it is essential to gain a realistic insight into the current state of the pier.
This is where a digital twin comes in.
A digital twin is a virtual replica of the physical asset that incorporates real-time data to provide a true representation of its condition and damage.
To create a digital twin of the pier on the Coast of King Petar Krešimir IV, the team used remotely operated vehicles (ROV) and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).
The ROV was used to inspect the underwater parts of the pier, while the UAV captured images of the above-water parts.
These images were then processed to create a measurable 3D model with an accurate representation of the pier’s condition and damage.
The use of ROV and UAV technology ensures that all damage to the pier is visible at an accuracy level of up to 1 cm.
This level of accuracy is crucial in ensuring that the reconstruction and construction phases are carried out effectively.
Pier Reconstruction With Digital Twin Providing a Realistic Insight
By having a realistic insight into the pier’s current state, the team can design the new foundation and wall structure according to the existing condition, taking into account design, slopes, and all materials used.
The digital twin of the pier will also be used to monitor the facility over time in all phases of the process of reconstruction, construction, and maintenance.
This will ensure that any damage or changes to the pier’s condition are easily visible and can be addressed promptly.
In conclusion, the creation of a digital twin of the pier on the Coast of King Petar Krešimir IV is a crucial step in ensuring the success of the reconstruction and construction of port infrastructure in the City of Zadar.
It provides a realistic insight into the pier’s current state and allows for the effective design and implementation of the project.
The use of ROV and UAV technology ensures that all damage is visible at an accuracy level of up to 1 cm, providing a true representation of the pier’s condition and damage.
