Footbridge over Secchia River

Sassuolo - 2007 - 2009

This 5 spans (three 40m length spans and two 20m length spans) Cabled stayed bridge is 160m long and it is cable stayed to 4 intermediate pylons and 2 approaches.

The longest spans are hanged in their midpoint by 2 triplets of cables (each one connected to the adjacent pylon). The 4 pylons are alternated with respect to the deck from the planar point of view; this fact is a peculiar architectural feature of the bridge, but it also allows to give an higher stiffener to the structure in the horizontal plane. The deck is supported by a spatial structural truss, made by a lower chord, two upper chords and diagonal elements. Secondary beams are supported by the previous mentioned main truss; these beams main aim is to support the planking level.
