Digital twin created for groundbreaking bridge with Allplan Bridge

Article | April 17, 2020

The Ottendorf Viaduct on the Riesa-Chemnitz railway line stood for over 160 years until it could no longer be saved and had to be replaced in 2015. The new replacement structure built at that time was a first for Deutsche Bahn: For the first time in its history, it built a bridge with a frame-stiffened arch structure. Although 3D models were used to some extent in the planning of the structure, the BIM method was not applied, so that no digital twin of the bridge is available for future (maintenance) work.

How To Use Chaos Engineering for Observability

Article | April 17, 2020

There’s an old truth in software development that your backup is only as good as your last restore. Something similar can be said for your observability platform: You don’t really know how good it is until your system hits a snag, and you can correlate spikes on your dashboards with real system activity. New Relic Solution Architects work with customers to build out best practices for using our platform.

Infrastructure Policy Watch: new resilience guidelines from Australia and UK hydrogen strategy

Article | April 17, 2020

Infrastructure Australia outlines new guidance on how to improve infrastructure resilience Infrastructure Australia has released a new set of resilience guidelines for infrastructure, noting that the events of recent years have brought Australia’s vulnerability to threats such as bushfires, droughts, floods, pandemics and cyber-attacks into sharp focus. The Advisory Papers, developed in partnership with Infrastructure New South Wales, estimate that, by 2050, the economic cost of natural disasters in Australia will more than double from about AU$18 billion annually to AU$39 billion. Infrastructure Australia wants infrastructure resilience in project planning and business cases “to become business as usual”. The organisation is required to evaluate business cases for infrastructure projects that receive more than AU$250 million in funding from the federal government and has indicated it may reject proposals that do not effectively incorporate infrastructure resilience.
