Pedestrian bridge over A13 Highway

Dozza (Bologna) - 2006 - 2009

The 100m long pedestrian bridge over A13 Highway between Padua and Bologna is made by a structural system of a no-push arch. The main structure is made by:

  • A big tripod made by steel box cross-section built up by welded steel plates;
  • A cable spokes cable system that hangs the deck bringing the stress to the chord in one location, only.

The push given by the struts is balanced by the tiers location. Deck tension stress allows, together with contrast curvatures, a stabilization for wind loading effects.
