The Hochmosel-Bridge, Germany - Manufacture, assembly and design of the superstructures.

Technical constructions in which one or more parameters are beyond the scope of its ordinary dimension often prove to be incompatible for the application of the ordinary, conventional design principles. It can be shown that even with apparent phenomenological analogy of two to comparative constructions, while apparent scale distortion rather than a transfer of experience or standardized procedures with regard to better special solutions are applied to the design of a structure or their static and dynamic capabilities. The Hochmoselbrücke leaves with parameters such as height above ground (about 160 m), her total length of 1702 m, and her maximum single span of about 210 m, which was also not reduced by auxiliary supports during the assembly process, parts of usual dimensions of a full-steel-bridge-construction. The stepwise implemented assembly and move procedure of the site-process (for the superstructure assembly) brings in overcoming of these single span a new record of a free cantilever executes process in Europe.
