[1]. Wind Tunnel Laboratory

The wind tunnel laboratory was built in 1987 and completed in 1990. Tongji University is the earliest Wind Engineering Research Institute in China. At present, the laboratory has six large, medium and small boundary layer wind tunnels, and the overall scale ranks top in the world. The laboratory is equipped with advanced measuring force, pressure, velocity, vibration instruments and data acquisition system and computer workstation for scientific research and production test.

[2]. Tongji University Museum

After the 100th anniversary of Tongji University, founded in 1907, the Feasibility Conceptual Design was organized in conjunction with the Graduate Design Program. Ultimately, Tongji campus with the longest history, where the environment has a unique commemorative significance of the 129 building, was selected as the museum site selection and reconstruction of the object. The Museum was established by using the cultural relics and materials collected by Tongji University to serve the scientific research and cultural development of the university.

[3]. The Bund

The Bund, as one of the most famous places of interest of Shanghai, is 1.5 kilometers long right next to the Central Business District near the Oriental Pearl Radio & TV Tower. It runs from Yan'an East Road in the south to Garden Bridge on Suzhou River in the north. After Shanghai became a commercial port, foreign banks, commercial banks, general associations and newspapers began to gather here, and the Bund became the financial center of the whole country and even the Far East.

[4]. Boat Tour

The beautiful scenery on both sides of the Huangpu River is a symbol of Shanghai. On its east side is the prosperous Lujiazui Financial District. On the west side is the historic buildings of all countries. The cruise ship will show you the beautiful scenery in the core area of the Huangpu River.

Garden (Waibaidu) bridge: The current Garden bridge, also called Waibaidu Bridge, was built in January 20, 1908. The Garden Bridge was removed as a whole from its site to the factory for repair, and it returned in 2009 with a life extension of 50 years. Because of its rich history and unique design, Garden Bridge has become one of the symbols of Shanghai, and also a symbol of Shanghai's modernization and industrialization.

Fig. 7 Garden Bridge (137.25m, built in 1908)

Nanpu Bridge: Nanpu Bridge, built in 1991 and main spanned 423m, is the first bridge across the Huangpu River in downtown Shanghai. The second bridge on the Huangpu River was completed on November 19, 1991. Nanpu Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge with double pylons, double cable planes and composite beams designed and built by China. And it is one of the largest cable-stayed bridges at that time.

Fig. 8 Huangpu Bridge  (423m, built in 1991)

Yangpu Bridge: Yangpu bridge, main spanned 602m, is the second cable-stayed bridge across the Huangpu River. It was the longest cable-stayed bridge in the world when open to traffic in 1993. The Yangpu Bridge with a 208-meter towe is like a sword piercing the sky. 32 pairs of cables on both sides of the tower connect the main girders and spread out in a fan like a giant strings. It is playing the sonata of a giant dragon soaring. The design of the whole bridge is exquisite, beautiful and magnificent. It is a famous sight of Shanghai tourism.

 Fig. 9 Yangpu Bridge (602m, built in 1993)

Lupu Bridge: Lupu bridge, built in 2003 and main spanned 550m, is the second longest steel arch bridge in the world today. It is also the first large-scale arch bridge in the world to be entirely welded. It has high scientific and technological content, strict precision requirements and difficult construction. It marks a major breakthrough in Bridge Technology in China, and the level of bridge building has reached a new level. Lupu Bridge is like a beautiful rainbow across the banks of the Pujiang River, adding new landscapes and signs to Shanghai.
