The test for the behavior of 1915 Canakkale Bridge in the smooth and turbulent flow, the 20 meter per second (72 per hour), the 45,4 per second (162 per hour) and the 82 meter per second (324 per hour) wind speed and the service conditions of the towers and decks were completed successfully.
Transport and Infrastructure Minister M. Cahit Turhan participated in the Full Model Wind Tunnel Test of the 1915 Çanakkale Bridge at Southwest Jiaotong University in China.
Explaining before the section and tower wind tests, Turhan said that he has learned that Southwest Jiaotong, the oldest university in China, has been providing the best and highest quality education in the world especially in the fields of transportation, construction and mining engineering.
Turhan, the university's Wind Engineering Research Center has the world's largest wind tunnel laboratory said.
Reminding that they have built the world's largest main span suspension bridge in the Dardanelles, Turhan stated that they are aiming to complete the project and open it for service as planned.
It is aimed to be put into service on 18 March 2022
100 completion, the 2023th anniversary of the Republic of Turkey, the establishment of the planned project March 18, 2022 Turhan Minister explained that the aim of opening up the service, one of the important stages of the Dardanelles Bridge also said that the wind tunnel tests.
Turhan, 3-stage wind first of Canada's test, noting that the latter is held in Denmark, the project makes South Korean SK E & C and Daelim with Limak from Turkey and Yapi Merkezi company's bridge with the participation of representatives noted that the third stage of their presence in China for wind test .
Turhan stated that the Çanakkale Bridge of 4 will be tested after a 1915-month working period, and that the result of this test will be an important data source for them.
Turhan said that the test will be a new beginning among the Turkish and Chinese peoples. He said that the two people will have the opportunity to work together on projects and projects.
they are working with Chinese partners in many projects in Turkey Turhan noted that, "In our country the greatest desire to be with a Chinese company in new projects we have planned." said.
Minister Turhan, especially in transportation projects trained manpower and contracting companies, Turkish companies in partnership with the world business opportunities in many countries can be researched, he added.
Tests completed successfully
Then, the behavior of 1915 Çanakkale Bridge in the service conditions of the towers and decks at a smooth and turbulent flow, at 72, 162 and 324 kilometers per hour wind speeds were tested. The tests, which lasted about 10 minutes, were successfully completed.
According to the results of this test, necessary changes will be made to the model and tests will be passed representing the construction phase conditions.
