Structural performance assessment by digital twin approach
Dr. Radomír Pukl, Červenka Consulting s.r.o., Prague, Czech Republic
Digital twin is a modern concept, in which a digital replica of a real product and structure is developed, and a simulation is performed to test the product behaviour under service conditions. The digital twin method can be used for making assessments of safety, durability and reliability of concrete structures. Although some numerical modelling is often done when a concrete structure is evaluated, it usually does not involve the simulation of real behaviour under service and environmental loads including chloride ingress, reinforcement corrosion, and assessment of ultimate load carrying capacity. The digital twin concept in addition includes an important aspect of the digital twin: calibration and validation using the real monitoring data.
