The making of the Rion-Antirion Bridge Pylon Video
Permalink   
 


Video of the pylon construcction.  The video is about 50 minutes long, the most important parts are the plate construcction and float out 11:32 into the video.

Interesting from a seasteading and plate seastead perspective is the building of the plate in the graving dock and the organization of the concrete works.

Also important the floating status of the plate that could work as plate seastead as it is.

Further the slipforming of the shaft in a floating concrete structure.

From the perspective of a underwater observatory or a submarine tower structure the walk inside the pylon 70m below the waterline is interesting.

gravelbed for the pylon 10:15
plate construcction 11:32
concrete works 12:23
plate float out: 13:28
shaft building: 14:45
set pylon on ocean floor 15:40
inside pylon walk 70m below surface 17:40

The forming of the Rion-Antirion Bridge Pylon is similar as the forming of the legs of Troll A (slip forming method).

The ocean colonization concept derivated from the Rion - Antirion Pylon construcction would be the plate seastead or stadion seastead

The technical limits for a tubular concrete structure under hydrostatic load like this is 1400m (destruction depth) - the plate shape of the rion - antirion pylon is 70m submerged in its final position.

It is also clear that this kind of structures can be built for mobile use as proposed in the Sea Orbiter concept.

Concrete has clearly emerged as the most economical and durable material for the building of the vast majority of marine structures. Reinforced concrete too has overcome the technological problems making it a suitable material for the construction of advanced marine structures such as offshore drilling platforms, superspan bridges and undersea tunnels. As the world becomes increasingly ocean-oriented for energy and other resources it is predicted that construction activities during the 21st century will be dominated by concrete sea structures. The performance of concrete in the marine environment is presented here in a logical manner giving state-of-the-art reviews of the nature of the marine environment, the composition and properties of concrete, history of concrete performance in seawater, major causes of deterioration of concrete in the marine environment, selection of materials and mix proportioning for durable concrete, recommended concrete practice and repair of deteriorated marine structures. It is of value to any design or construction engineer responsible for marine structures.
