gophotonics 3dThe Coastal Highway Route E39 (Ferjefri E39) project by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) is aimed at finding solutions for seven the fjord crossings along the 1100 km coastline between Kristiansand and Bergen in Norway. The NPRA now has been collaborating with a group of University of Stavanger (UiS) researchers who have been investigating a new laser-based method for measuring wind behavior in the fjords, which is vital for designing safe structures. The method is now being applied for the first time in relation to bridge design. A fjord is basically a long, narrow, deep inlet of the sea between high cliffs typically formed by submergence of a glaciated valley. Read More
