Conference: Footbridge 2005 (Second International Congress), Venezia, 06-08 December 2005
Published in:

Among “our” foot bridge projects, we selected the following ones and illustrated their structural and architectural features
along with the solution of the relevant problems which was effected; competition designs are included also to give a wide
spectrum of the general interesting aspects of the theme:

  1. San Giuliano bridge in Venezia Mestre
  2. Bridge over the East Ring Highway in Agrate - Italy
  3. Bridge in Nicosia – Cyprus
  4. Bridge in Formia - Italy
  5. Competition for a bridge over Po river in Torino - Italy
  6. Competition for a bridge over Brembo river in San Pellegrino – Italy
  7. Competition for a bridge over Cidacos river in Calahorra – Spain

Several schemes, materials and details were exploited to best fit the site conditions, like continuous girders and frames, bow strings, cable stayed structures; the materials range from steel, concrete and steel-concrete composites.

Ad hoc designed devices were used for the dynamic control of vibrations and for longitudinal releasing of continuous girders.

The erection methods include concrete prefabrication and segmental construction.
